ELLE Decoration Fashion Issue

Our new Fashion Issue is here, with a racy inspiration fashion interiors shoot, dripping with luxurious details and a look inside the stylish spaces of Jessica Alba, Stella Jean and Malcolm Kluk. Available in print across South Africa and globally as a digital download.

This issue, DECO is teaching you to be brave with your decor choices; embracing bold colour, interesting textures and really examining what your own luxury really means. Editor Bielle Bellingham opens our Fashion Issue with a clear direction:

Be fiercely glamorous and brave, inviting new energy and a new idea of luxury into your homes and wardrobes. This doesn’t always mean the most expensive… the ultimate luxury is time, peace and the opportunity to make sustainable and compassionate decisions.

Here online, take a quick glimpse at our key features – from the unparalleled chaos of Lagos to a bedroom special in DECO Lab. Trending tots in DECO Kid, bridal blooms in DECO Grow and our most fashionable DECO Read to date ensure all of your favourite regular features are up to date, plus indulgent special features on iconic treasure troves of houses around the world, profiles of the leading names in urban development and property investment in South Africa today and the ultimate local shopping list for our most luxurious Get The Look features yet.

Humid, vibrant and unapologetically chaotic, Africa’s next fashion capital is a whirlwind of contrasts. See what we discovered.
