It’s time to heat up those icy cold snaps this winter season in SOUTH AFRICA as winter fashion, styles and looks are in and its time to get cozy as we warm up to that modish Homegrown Winter Fashions this weekend and June month

We introduce to you all newest South African modeling beauty aka Melanie Storm alongside photographer Eduard Labuschagne from MODELCONNECTRSA as they showcase that winter style beauty look this season.

Melanie is all about passion for beauty and fitness… she also says WINTER SEASON is her favorite season of all… All the way from Pretoria South Africa Melanie also says , in her own words… when it comes to modeling,

“The camera breaks me out of whatever holds me back.” … and that’s exactly the type of confidence we want to see in a lady that stands for that clean, elegant, modern, sporty and edgy. styles she rocks out loud. As our CEO Arne Schreuder finds out more.

Welcome Melanie and congrats on your very first mollbabe model feature with us for MOLLMAGSA JUNE 2020 alongside ModelConnectRSA how does it feel right now for you? 

Overwhelming!… I can honestly say that I have never in a million years imagined myself being featured in one of the most recognized, established, stylized modeling and lifestyle magazines in South Africa, so proud to be part of the MOLLMAGSA FAMILY! 

Introduce yourself to us in a quick bio of yourself how you are, where you reside from and what’s your interests and hobbies Melanie? 

I’m 26 going on 27 soon. I was born and currently residing in Pretoria SA. “Beauty and fitness are my passion!” 

One of my favorite hobbies is being in front of the camera…” the camera leaves me feeling like I’m the only one on this enormous planet”,  it leaves my heart beating in motions, my skin bursting with goosebumps and my breath…  like it’s for the first-time oxygen reaches my lungs!  

“The camera breaks me out of whatever holds me back.”

We come to notice winter season is here for South Africa and that “winter season” is your favorite of all season’s Melanie, explain to us why you love winter season so much? 

It’s all about how the whole season starts, which is autumn. To me it has a special meaning that in order for something new and beautiful to bloom in your life, you need to let go of the old. 

If you could describe your style and look in 5 words Melanie which words would that be? 

“Clean, elegant, modern, sporty and edgy. I believe that style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

Being or going through very stressful moments these days is part of the “ NEW NORMAL of LIFE” as we know it today,  as everything is changing constantly and we have to keep up and adapted to new lifestyles… we would like to know how do you deal with those stressful moments in life, please explain? 

Model Melanie Storm – Yes, this “new normal of life” can be stressful but it’s all about how we as human beings react to it ~ a negative/bad attitude is like a flat tire, if you don’t change it, you won’t go anywhere 

MODELCONNECTRSA Photographer Eduard Labuschagne – Very true in saying this new-normal lifestyle and way of living is a true test of everyone’s character and who we are as a person, yes its very stressful looking at the business side of things…  

But in the same breath it’s also a challenge to push harder and also explore more options you never knew that was actually out there… working around the problem areas that’s given, to make things work in the end so it’s actually a blessing in disguise too… so to speak. 

Time to feel lucky… what would you do if you win the lottery / jackpot in the future? 

Model Melanie Storm – Wow, there’s a million things I can think of right now that’s a desire for me but I have to say that the need to give every animal on this planet the life they deserve would make that jackpot worth the winning!
