My Favourite Things: Thobeka Mbane


Let’s get to know our newly appointed Fashion Editor, South African based fashion stylist and creative director, Thobeka Mbane, a bit better as she takes us through 10 of her favourite things.


  1. Honestly, I’m such a jogger and crop tops girl with slides. I love a good pair of sneakers that I can put on with a dress and basically anything that’s comfortable and allows me to run around and go anywhere.



  1. I love Telfar and Ted Baker for handbags but I’m currently working my way up to owning an oversized Thebe Magugu shopper bag.



  1. Any bag that allows me to throw in everything and some accessories in there. I wear a lot of fanny packs when working because they help me carry and pack everything at once.



  1. I love make-up and playing with colourful eye shadow. My go to brand for make-up is Bobby Brown, Essence for eyeliners, and I love Fenty for lip glosses.



  1. I love reading old books and my old favourite books are “things fall apart” Chinua Achebe and “when rain clothes gather” by Bessie Head and a few poetry books by Upile Chisala.



  1. For fun I love going out to check out galleries from local artists like Banele Khoza Gallery, Artist Proof Studios, Nkhansani Rihlampfu and August House Studios.



  1. I love listening to music that has a lot of instruments like jazz and maskhandi because of the guitar and reggae because of the bass guitar and drums.



  1. I’m currently addicted to Cinnabon, I have one every morning 😂



  1. I’m a huge foodie. I’m not sure what my life would be without Uber eats but I love eating out. I’m a huge lover of steak and I also love cute Italian restaurants. I love The Blockman for steak and Modena for Pasta, but nothing can ever be better than KFC.



  1. I love children, I have one daughter and would love to have more kids and a big family inshallah.
