ST. O Puts A Spin On Bespoke Fashion

By Nombuso Nkambule (@hrh_nombuso)

ST. O is a vintage fashion retailer that offers timeless garments remodelled with a mod aesthetic. The three founders identified a common love for the reinvention of fashion and took the bold step to turn this common love into a unique and tangible business idea.

I was recently invited to a fabulous but somewhat cramped fashion launch at Wolves Café in Illovo, Johannesburg. I say cramped because Wolves is the size of a shoebox, however the bespoke vintage fashion aesthetic that is ST. O (Saint O) very quickly made up for the lack of space and the selective lack of goodie bags.

We were treated to a blitz of slinky models and stylised vintage fashion finds. I had to strain my neck to get a glimpse of the hurried models during the show which lasted only a few minutes, and without sounding like a prude I kept wishing the models would walk slower and that there were was more space for them to strut and display their stand-off poses.

Time and space aside, it was a visually pleasing show and I managed to share some praises and constructive critique with some of the ST. O founders.
