Conte x Creative

A while ago I went to the Cape Town launch of Conte Magazine, a quarterly magazine that I first shared with you guys HERE, but I managed to actually get myself a copy of this creative portfolio and I just love all that it is and all that it stands for.

Simply put, Conte magazine is a platform that drives creative collaboration amongst creative individuals from all fields by featuring them in the magazine. The first issue saw illustrators, fine artists, poets, graphic designers, animators, photographers, architects and fashion designers, come together to create some extraordinary work that I very much enjoyed paging through.

Every issue will have its own theme and will be accompanied by a quarterly exhibition event, which will see featured artists exhibiting their work. At the launch event I got to hear some moving live poetry and have a look at some of the beautiful and thought provoking artwork displayed; and I imagine the next event will be even better with more creatives joining this melting pot.


The theme for the next issue is AFRICA, and though the closing date for submissions has passed, I’m sure it will make for some interesting reading and bring inspiration for possible contributions to their next issue.

Check out the Conte website for more details and follow them on their social platforms here:

Through Shaded Eyes (TSE) is the brainchild of Tokelo Motsepe. A retail buyer and digital strategist with an addiction to blogging, this blog is a platform for my style, life and love for fashion to be shared. What started as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world, has now become a place to let out my passion for fashion & writing, in-between time spent at work, traveling, or doing everything else life throws at me… it has become a form of expression and I hope it can inspire and encourage you to also share!
