Shine//we just about broke a leg (long story) running to get our hands on this special edition of @vogueaustralia with the stunning + inspirational @adutakech who graces the cover of this months edition. We’re thrilled beyond measure to see a girl that looks just like us on the cover of one of the biggest magazines in the 🌍. Thrilled to bits that this young lady is taking the world by storm- have you ever been proud of someone that you don’t even know? More so this cover is exactly what we MUST see more of- this has to become the norm! Also peep the second slide + meet @gemmabirdm one of the uber talents + finalists for the 2018 Heath Ledger Scolsership- once again forever grateful that our threads get to be worn by such talented + down to earth chicks. Gemma wears pieces from our upcoming collection that drops early next year! Your favourite sisters are smiling from ear to ear like 2 Cheshire cats🦄🦄 (no smiling cat emoji’s). .

Hey!!!👋🏾So okay I feel like I need to apologise for the lack of engagement! I’m the one that’s responsible for all the social media content- and yes we might be sisters👭 that share the business but Instagram is my baby, plus admittedly I think I’m better at taking pix than Fatuma🙈-she wins on the excel front! So we’ve been quite, but in all honestly the last few months have been hectic + I’ve just been off Instagram- perhaps it’s been the lack of inspiration or the work life balance has gotten the best of us- either way we think it’s ok to step aside from social media + just focus on what’s important! We genuinely pride ourselves in bringing you dope content + visuals that allow you into our world! So let’s pick up from where we left😝! Oh this is me rocking one of mums tops she wore back from her hey day! 💁🏿‍♀️💃🏾
