Break out the champers and grab yourself a slice of red velvet to join in the celebration – tomorrow SA’s first fashion and news weekly celebrates its 1st ever Birthday. And to mark the occasion, Grazia South Africa has enlisted the country’s most talked-about and ultra-stylish celebrity to grace the cover of their birthday issue ...
Hitting newsstands from tomorrow (10 May 2013), Bonang Matheba, the queen of local social media, TV and radio talks to Grazia's Mokgadi Seabi about her reinvention in the special 50th issue of the magazine, which was shot in Sandton by star photographer Aubrey Jonsson ...
Grazia South Africa editor Danielle Weakley says Bonang was the obvious choice not just because of her trailblazing style which has seen her garner countless awards but because the star, who juggles a multitude of gigs from Top Billing and Clash of the Choirs to her popular slot on YFM, is one of the hardest working and most astute young women in the entertainment world today.
“Bonang is everywhere this year – And its only May! With a line-up of TV shows, a slew of weekly appearances, several magazine covers and hundreds of thousands of followers, we predict that her entry on the Forbes List is only the start of her 2013 tour de force” says Weakley.
But what would be a birthday celebration be without a surprise? The birthday edition is a bumper mag – and one of only two issues Grazia will produce as a perfect-bound collectors’ issue. In a further nod to the globally savvy, thirty-something urban readers (who avidly buy Grazia every week to find out what they can add to their wardrobes), the fashion and news weekly has unveiled a brand new website www.graziadaily.co.za and an online Grazia shop at www.spree.co.za/grazia where you don’t even need to leave your desk to shop the looks straight from the magazine.
“We truly believe in the power of Grazia as a 360-degree brand and the idea of being able to shop the mag appeals not just to our brand ethos but also to our fashion-smart, digitally-savvy readers.”
Over just 50 issues, the 21st syndicated edition of this weekly glossy magazine has single-handedly revolutionized the local publishing industry since its launch in May 2012, with other publications following on its stylish heels to cover fashion on a weekly basis.
Out every Friday, Grazia South Africa has quickly gained a reputation for bringing news with shoes and speed with style, week after week.
