Alexa Liss – Future The Forest, AFI Fastrack Capsule Collection

Alexa Liss showed a beautiful autumn/winter collection on the 26th of October 2013 at The Alexander Theatre in Braamfontein, Johannesburg. Her collection is ‘a considered blend between the natural and the futuristic with a modern minimalist aesthetic.'
We think out off all the AFI Fastrack Capsule Collections that was shown, Alexa’s was the most ‘wearable’ for any occasion. We loved the wooden clutch bags, dresses and jackets. We hope to see this collection in stores as we are certain it will be a hit.

The Sweet Life Experience at the Rihanna Concert


A few weeks ago the Swag Craze team experienced The Sweet Life during the Rihanna concert at FNB stadium, thanks to 4th Street wine. They treated us as VIP’s from the moment we arrived until the concert ended. The d├ęcor, vibe and food in the suite was on another level.

We got to see Rihanna in style, which made the concert more enjoyable. The American electronic dance duo GTA – geared us up with electro music while we waited for the Rihanna to perform.

Rihanna is a real superstar! She made an unforgettable entrance and started the concert with ‘Fresh of the runway’ and ended the concert with her hit song 'Diamonds'. She also made an epic exit leaving with our South African flag.

In case you missed the show, have a look at the videos below:
