Fashion design graduate spotlight: Shanae Van Loggerenberg

posted on June 26th, 2018 by Lissa Leandro Correa Mendes

We shine the spotlight on fashion design graduate: Shanae Van Loggerenberg. This Human of LISOF graduated in 2017 with a BA Degree Fashion in Design. She knew that fashion was for her literally a month before class started and grew through the years to develop her graduate range: ‘Distressed Perfection’. She chose to study fashion at LISOF because it offered her the best academic theory and practical skills she needed to understand everything about fashion. The LISOF end of year fashion show has become a highlight on the calendar of many fashion buyers, media and bloggers, as it showcases the future of fashion from first year and second year collective ranges to the third year individual ranges.

“My inspiration came from things transitioning from perfect to imperfect and how we strive to be perfect, thinking it is beautiful when the truth is that being imperfect is more so. I thought the best way to show this was by making my designs all white and adding fine detailing to show how perfect imperfection can be” – Shanae about what inspired her 3rd year individual range

Shanae is now working on two fashion labels, one being her own; ‘Conform/Reinvent’. This fashion label will communicate how we choose to be the same as others and conform to rules laid out by society even if we do not agree and also how we can have our own voice within those societal confines. The second label she will be working for is an already established company. Watch the video below of a snippet of the beginning process of her graduate range filmed by another Lisofian, Altia du Toit, who is a BA Fashion in Media

“Background of the video: For a Fashion Media assignment I had to pick one of the fashion design students to feature in my video. And who else than Shanae!? I had to conduct my own interview for the designer that allows a viewer more insight of the designer and shed light on the annual LISOF fashion show.” -Altia

LISOF Alumna, Emelia Nagel created a once-off outfit for American Reality Star, Blac Chyna. Emelia graduated in 2015, BA Fashion Degree¬†and was awarded; Best Avant-Garde Range in her final year and was featured on the Espresso Show for her amazing collection. The Lisofian was approached by Cosmopolitan to create an outfit tailor-made for the curvaceous “video vixen”. Blac Chyna, aka Angela Renee White was recently chosen as a MAC Cosmetics ambassador for the #MACShadescents campaign:

INSPIRATION FOR EMELIA’S DESIGN:

 

“I received the measurements from the Cosmopolitan fashion team, which allowed me to customise the outfit. Fittings were not an option prior to the photo shoot, but I kept track of Blac Chyna’s social media to guesstimate her size for a closer fit. Unfortunately I didn’t get to meet her as I currently work in the Seychelles as a Costume Stylist. I wanted her to feel like the outfit complimented and celebrated her unique shape and show off her flamboyant personality”
