The Old School Party

Wednesday, 9 May 2012

There was an old school themed party last weekend. People were a little bit confused about the particular time period they were supposed to be dressed for, so there were a lot of different styles. At this party, old school referred to the time period between the 60's and the 90's.  A few pictures below- I'm going to have fun tagging/attaching them to a throw back era, enjoy!

Tu Face Concert Part 2

Wednesday, 2 May 2012

So obviously there were other acts and performances apart from Maali. There was also another fashion line of sportswear by my friend Chavez. The styling of the models was done by Michi. There were also a couple of dance acts with a surprise merge of dance groups 418 and Alpha Prime and performances by Minty Sax (my friend in whom I am well pleased),  Elle and other rappers. View pictures below.
