When it’s time for an event like Night in the Garden, the first person we think of is, of course, the one and only Minky (@minkymothabela)! The beauty expert, influential youtuber and all-round style goddess graced us with her immaculate presence and joined us at 27 Boxes for an experiential exhibition like no other. Night in the Garden hosted an incredible exhibition with Lethabo Boogy Maboi showing off her unbelievable BLBL (Be Local Buy Local) series. The event was an evening of art, fashion, great local music and a quick but important lesson on the significance of supporting and celebrating local talent.

We couldn’t have chosen a better companion for the night, Minky was in her element as we brushed shoulders with local fashion elites and immersed ourselves in the exhibition. Dressed up and ready for anything, Minky effortlessly rocked the outfit she had chosen specially for the evening.

A cool mixture of edgy leather lines and sheer accents, the muted colour pallet of the complete look instead emphasized texture and shape in all our favourite ways. Business and street styles layered together never looked so good! Cheeky form fitting trousers added a fun, classy element to the style and the cropped top with sheer details came together for added allure.

It’s true that a great outfit can elevate any event and we got to see that first hand with this girl at our side! We had the privilege of sharing the spectacle and sights of the evening and felt inspired by both her fiery personality and the amazing art and fashion seen in the exhibition. Her fab look and dazzling smile stole the show and matched wonderfully with the other fun fashion looks shown by the many other fashion creatives who attended. All that was left to say at the end of the night was thanks TFG for giving Minky the perfect look for a great night out!
