Goitseone Montsho

Goitseone Montsho is an fashion activist, actress, poet, model and performance artist.

In my work I have tried to use different disciplines (fashion, writing and performance) to bring across my point of view.

In an age where classification is key I have always found pleasure in playing with the different ideas of identity and the freedom to recreate oneself through style.

As a child growing up in a township in South Africa I realised the stark difference to how people treated you according to the clothes on your back. This realisation, after being laughed at for wearing pay-less(no name) sneakers, bought me to the next phase in my life where I would wear knock offs in a game called fake-it-till-you-make-it.

When I became a fashion model at 16 and started to finally get my hands on ‘’better quality’’ clothes I became at first very brand conscious. Everything had to have a name…and not just any name. A famous name.

Reclass by Lea

The fashion of Reclass stands for a self-evident, urban look and feel: it's functional, feminine, comfortable and sustainable.

The aspect and practice of sustainability has been at the forefront of Reclass as a label from the very beginning.

These garmets are a perfect fit for all seasons, not just in design but also in quality.

We used certified fabrics and recycled materials at every step of production.

Their conviction and belief unfolds within the core piece, the "Reclass Coat".

Here, aesthetics is combined with efficiency and durability.

It's 100% made from recycled tarpaulin, making it water repellent and completely reversible.

Reclass is a refreshing and beautiful new take on how and why we dress. It strives to capture a fleeting moment during this evolving and uncertain juncture in time.

Ange da Costa

Berlin, Germany

In his current home town Berlin, Ange da Costa and his band are working on his debut album. With this record, Ange da Costa wants to go back to the starting point after many years of live performances and collaborations. The featured songs do not necessarily yield to the given pop structures. He wants to record a LP that reflects Him, his emotions, origin, experiences in the Diaspora thoughts and visions. The LP will be called Kamusevo (name of his mother and great grandmother), Kamusevo Mkueno (full-length), which means something like "do not rejoice in my suffering". The album is a journey to the origins of his passion for music, Congolese and African music, combined with jazz, reggae and electro influences. The focus of the record is on the stories, his voice and melodies, embedded in powerful grooves
