Yolande Letshou – My November Blog:


from Nolcha was in London for a couple of weeks so we were in meeting after
meeting and really preparing for Nolcha Fashion Week ( www.nolchfashionweek.com) London
which I will be directing in Feb 08.

Fashion Week is a great project and I’m very excited and passionate about what
Nolcha are doing as a whole to offer designers opportunities on an
international scale to get their products out there!!


Fashion Shows:

attended the Kyzar Chic fashion show for designer Kalikas Armour showcased at
the exclusive collection in
South Kensington.  His collection was very sharp and formal. I
really liked the cuts and fit of his clothing. I was extremely tired, can you
believe?? People usually don’t picture the two words “Yolande and Tired”
together. I’m only human what can I say.
