ELLE New Talent designer search winner is a PE peep

The winner of the ELLE New Talent designer search has just been announced and what do you know, chica hails from Port Elizabeth. Secretly, I’m a bit surprised ‘cos PE’s never been a ‘fashion capital’, if you know what I mean. I remember going back home a few years back wearing skinny jeans and my old school friends looked at me like I was a mentalist. ‘WHAT are you wearing?’, they shrieked? ‘Those are HIDEOUS! They’ll never catch on…’

Kelly Esterhuyse, ELLE's New Talent talent winter.

Anyhoo, this years winner is Kelly Esterhuyse. She’s won a mentorship from Mr. P as well as R25K. According to judge Dion Change, Kelly’s clever use of merino wool (another awesome Oos Kaap export) is what set her apart.

Love it when PE peeps make me proud.
