Basetsana Kumalo walks us through the looks which made her a fashion icon
At the risk of stating the dazzlingly obvious – the glam we associate with Top Billing’s leading ladies always comes back to Bassie – who, since the mid nineties, has set the benchmark.
Having represented Top Billing on camera, Mrs Kumalo forged a style entirely her own as she moved more into her role as producer and businesswoman. She distilled both international and African influences into a signature look.
This inspirational woman takes every opportunity she can to immerse herself in exotic influences which means trips to Manhattan have been invaluable in learning from the best.
With a huge number of business, media and charity engagements through the years, she continues to take each as an opportunity to champion the best South African design.
Sometimes, turning heads is about elegant restraint – when everyone is expecting you to go all out and that is how Bassie manages to make a grand entrance wherever she goes.
