MOCAA Cape Town Opening Event.

Opening celebration with many different african designers…

I was wearing an Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Gala dress for that day. I thought was very appropriate for this event and I enjoyed a lot.

A major new cultural institution is being created in the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town. It is called Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) in honour of the renowned Zeitz Collection, that will form the museum’s founding collection, and the support of Jochen Zeitz of the programming and acquisition funds.

That was a great day a beautiful Gala with very interesting people from Africa-South Africa and from all over the world.

Thank you Mark Semonian, Thank you Jochen Zeitz.

MOOCA Cape Town



Learning how to shoot in Cape Town – dealing with survival in the world.

In Cape Town and Africa in general is the place where I felt a really strong energy comparing to Europe for survival. You becoming more sensitive to the animal world and see the things from another point of view.The world wasn’t save but Europe was for me.Now Is not that safety anymore and you can see how vulnerability can be the human being after what is happening in our society

Even the barbies can end into a cake for being eaten. And this is the reality…my reality in South Africa.

I was with my grandfather learning how to shoot shotguns just for sport on his competition, I was very little but he was always taking me there on weekends, he taught  me how to make cartridge in a recycle way I had a lot of fun looking one of his passions.

And now I realise this is a serious way or option on life if you want to take it for survival is very serious…don’t play with this just be ready…for it.

My grandfather was very serious about all this things and he passed his knowledge to me, looks very simple but is the consequence of life, being ready for this life.

And I’m against war…

Umlani – Krüger – South Africa

From Cape Town to Krüger, is not an easy fly as a know now. All depend of the weather, it can be a lovely day and immediately turned into a nightmare storm where you can not see anything and start to believe in angles and God up in the sky.

First of all you need to check  the wheels and all the machinery of the plain if you don’t have to have an extra surprise.

And this trip I was in charge of the wheels but I needed some help, 🙂

We were eating and sleeping in one special and simple loge in Umlani- Krüger, very hippy stile simple and relaxing one. Good and simple food all we needed. All basic staff but good. For me the best to enjoy in that moment.

Our way back to Cape Town was really bad whether we could not see the sky for an hour everything was withe and mist…



From South-Africa to New York- Ciano Clerjuste

Ciano is based in New York but he has a lot of present as well in the fashion week in South Africa in Johannesburg.  He has one of the unique Foundation in the fashion world- United Colors of  Fashion in the fashion week of New York.

Every year is getting bigger and bigger and much more powerful  and professional.

The education program offered by UCOF Academy to under-resourced New York youth, is the only program of its kind in the United States. He use the benefits of the fashion world to educate in culture and fashion formation to this students.

I consider one of the most magnificent services and in the fashion world ever heard before. Not always the fashion world is cruel and  bad energy. You can find good people with creative and humanity who wants to do good thinks and build a  future in the right way.
