Warming up the summer party circuit, the Flying Fish Flavor Odyssey was held on 25 November. The lush gardens of Victoria Yards were brought to life by the vibrant sounds and stylistic flow of American rapper J.I.D who performed alongside local superstars Moonchild Sanelly, our November cover star Sho Madjozi, Black Motion, Spoek Mathambo and Manthe Ribane.
The first ever Flavour Odyssey was intended to shake the masses and add some flavour to our Joburg summer with a celebration of the brand’s new pack design which changes colour in the sun. While we wait for our clothes to do that (surely, in 2018?!), we enjoyed the very unique event. A central, massive sundial was surrounded by constantly changing experiences, in food, fashion and art which were revealed every hour.
Creative collective The Sartists led the charge in fashion, curating an exclusive eye-catching collection inspired by the sun, which showcased a fashion adventure encapsulated by the unconventional.
The performers were sure to come to the party, with Manthe Ribane and her other-worldly performance of the ethereal journey into the Dear Ribane world. “Makhe” hitmaker Moonchild Sannelly got the crowd going dressed in a sequinned bodysuit and rapper Patty Monroe served looks in a custom “Malatjie” top.

The style element was also evident in the attendees, who dressed according to the theme of "Afrochic."
We're excited to see where the Flavor Odyssey experience will go, and also if expected performer Masego (who couldn't get to the party because of personal reasons) will hopefully be able to join the next one...
