This past weekend, dandies, bloggers, photographers and many other sorts of creatives gathered at the Cape Grace Library in Cape Town for the launch of a dandy fraternity called the Afrodandy Social club.
Founded by Omphile Sedumedi, Tony Maake (also known as Tony Mac), Menzi Mcunu and Zola Msizi; the sartorial society was created with the aim of creating a networking platform for fashion enthusiasts and creatives in the Western Cape.
The meetings of the social club will be held on the first Sunday of each month at the Cape Grace Library.
With regards to the movement including women, Tony Maake admitted that there is a lot of effort that still needs to be put in from both sides. “A lot of women do not realise that they are a part of the Afrodandy movement, we have to make them realise that sometimes,” he said.
Maake, who is also a photographer said: “When I host an exhibition, I do not want it to be just men on the wall, I want women to be up there as well. Our actions need to speak [inclusivity].”
