Anelisa Mangcu is a Cape Town based Artist that has a depth passion for the arts. She’s one of the most stylish bloggers around, a brand consultant, stylist, art curator and the co-founder of Perfectly Tailored. Miss Mangcu’s stylish,inspirational&fashion forward Tumblr blog “Perfectly Tailored”, co-founded by her& TV personality and fashion designer Siyabonga Ngwekazi also known as Scoop Makhathini fuses her photographic flair and love of colour and texture with her tasteful&rich eye for men’s fashion,which I highly admire,the diversity she emerges in her love of fashion. Perfectly Tailored has been named one of the Top Ten South African street style blogs in 2012 by The Times newspapers’ online publication Times Live,that is a huge&humbling achievement on its own. Since the uproot of the project Perfectly Tailored, Ngwekazi and Mangcu have refined the creative side of fashion to one that is managed by Mangcu with the knowledge she has, as a way to place more focus on their respective upcoming creative projects. Anelisa is a lover of photography, Her first photographic venture was a 2010 collaborative exhibition at the Exposure Gallery at the age of 17,Yes 17 years she was embracing her craft. Anelisa’s debut solo photographic art exhibition “The Moments Amidst the Chaos”, which ran in September of 2011,gave her the recognition as a young, emerging artist. The pieces she displayed in the exhibition were a reflection of Anelisa’s love of rich colour and texture which in my words I would say her work is a Beacon Of Hope. The exhibition attracted a lot of social media attention,who wouldn’t be intrigued&engaged in such work of art? and countless features on online and print publications. In 2012, Anelisa co-exhibited her photographic work with Cape Town photographer Max Mogale and other well known artists at a collaborative photographic installation exhibition titled “Exhibit B” sponsored by Play. Anelisa also co-curated a Women’s Month Exhibition at the Strand Tower Hotel with Yang Zhao,showcasing her as an experienced artist and curator in the Cape Town photography world. At a tender young age Miss Mangcu has achieved a lot&is still going further.
