A full 10 years after the event was first launched in an intimate Rosebank nightclub, the Feather Awards celebrated their memorable tenth anniversary in grand style at the Johannesburg City Hall. In honour of the evening, we have here our five favourite fashionable moments that hit home, let’s do this!
The Stylista team loved how the evening was filled with hilariously scandalous commentary from the MC, a Feathers veteran, Somizi, awe-inspiring performances from Nhlanhla Nciza, the Mzansi Gay Choir and Zoe Modiga, surprise appearances from reality TV stars Evodia ‘Madame’ Mogase and her daughter Mercy, coupled with incredible choreography and a dazzling stage production, the Feathers once again delivered the phenomenal spectacle audiences have learnt to expect from the event.
The most anticipated item of the evening, the winners list reads like a roll-call of Mzansi’s most inspiring, most amusing, most controversial and most admired personalities. A party is not no party without Lady Yaya, seen above, she is our absolute favourite blogger, who you will find at all of Mzansi’s A list events, mingling and reporting on the stars of SA. Look at her … After many years of serving the entertainment industry she finally gets her recognition.
To dial up the community-facing initiatives that take place over the year, powered by the awards, Thembi Ntaka performed an award winning piece “Save Me” that made all our hearts sing! She really knows how to put together a performance, look at that costume and the dancers … One of the popular Feather projects highlighted in through performance are Community Dialogues, which tackles issues about LGBTIQ+ rights, needs and interests.
Here is a quick wrap up of the Top 5 winners from the 10th annual Feather Awards, we look forward to celebrating our own brothers and sisters again for another 10 year of great fashion moments, by those who shape our communities.
