Afrika Gola has become one of Johannesburg’s most sought-after stylists through her styling company FearLes Afrika. Not only does Gola have a unique and fashionable name but has the enviable skill of setting trends, leading the fashion pack and building a brand synonymous with breaking fashion as well as academic boundaries.
With a timeless and classic aesthetic, Gola said her fashion sense is an ode to staying true to herself and piecing together outfits that work for her personal taste.
“As much as I’m a fashionista I understand that not everything is going to work for me. So, I stay away from anything that makes me look ridiculous and uncomfortable,” she said.
City Buzz caught up with the fashionista to talk about all things fashion and looming trends for the new season. Check out Gola’s five must-have items for spring below:
