Bitches, meet NYané (Pronounced Nee-ya-nee) a 19 year old Fine art and textiles student living in South Hampton with super style.
We met her when we uploaded her picture to our FB page and have been tweeting and Tumbling ever since. Together with her twin sister Mpho, South African NYane started their Tumblr in the summer of 2011 and the pair are now style superstars in their own right.
We recently worked with Nyane on a BITCHING shoot and fell in love. With her fresh 90’s look, nuclear orange hair and her mischievous charm she’s a bitchy girl for sure. We delved a little deeper to find out what makes this Tumblr girl tick…..
