19 Sep Nikiwe Dlova, Big Zulu & Karabo Poppy Join Stylin’s Creative Conquerors Squad
Formerly known as Stylin’ Dredz, Stylin’ is all about owning individuality, styling your story and standing out in a way that is encouraged and celebrated.
In 2018 Stylin’ introduced The Creative Conquerors – a collective of creatives in various disciplines who have crafted their careers and seen great success doing what they truly love. They embody the Stylin’ ethos and use their art forms, self-expression and creativity to help reshape the world we live in. 2019 sees a new group of Creatives Conquerors joining the movement.
The 2019 Creative Conquerors chose a location in and around Johannesburg CBD and added their creative touch to curate signature urban art installations. These installations will act as landmarks for the Stylin’ City Art Tour-which is available for the public to experience at no cost for three months. Consumers will have the opportunity hop onto a Stylin’ Bus and take the tour to visit these installations while learning about the inspiration behind each piece of artwork-taking in an authentic Jozi experience, as the backdrop to the creative flair provided by the Creative Conquerors.
