The End GBV Now campaign is an LGBTQ+ inclusive editorial of striking, high fashion imagery that identifies and raises awarenes to the ongoing gender based violence brutality in South Africa.
"The intention for this campaign is to, ultimately, hold a mirror up to society and address the toxic state of masculinity through a series of evoking images that unite the fashion industry in publicly saying no to gender based violence as a national drive to end the brutality of gender based violence once and for all."
"Fashion offers the greatest and largest platform to communicate with the world, to both inspire and implement change, from politicians to the person on the street, fashion is a language in which we all communicate in and offers the largest and greatest canvas for me to spread my message – a message rooted in redefining masculinity"
