Special Blog Post - Henck Conrey


I recently heard that South Africa has some of the best entrepreneurs in the world – and Henck Conrey is definitely one of them. He is the founder of Conrey Entertainment and he is also a television producer, actor and part time B.Com accounting student at the University of South Africa (UNISA).  Wow.  Henck says that he is a creative person, but with some “left brain” abilities as well as he also enjoys being extremely analytical and logical.  Founding Conrey Entertainment it gave Henck the opportunity to combine his love for performance as well as corporate South Africa. Being exposed to both the corporate and creative side of life Henck says that the fashion differs – a lot!  As an actor you are able to express yourself in the clothes you wear, but in the corporate life there are more strict guidelines as to what is appropriate or not.
  
Fashion is a very important part of any person’s life and I am so happy to see that Henck also realises that.  When you think of an actor and what they wear it most likely represents a brand.  Henck used the example of Johnny Depp.  When you think of Johnny Depp’s fashion style you get a much more laid back casual look.  This “look” you decided on is how you will be recognised by the public eye.

Henck is very privileged to have a mother who is extremely fashionable and who helps him pick out most of his clothing items.  When he visits his parents he will easily find a new wardrobe hanging in his closet that his mother picked out for him.  I wish that more guys will listen to their mothers on what to wear and what not to wear – mommy’s always knows best!  Henck’s hair stylist, André Dercksen from Equilibrium Hair and Beauty in Pretoria ensures that his hair is always in peak condition and André is also the sponsor of Henck’s hair do on the new Afrikaans television show “Vat jou goed en trek” that will begin in October 2015.

So this ambitions, friendly and goal-driven young man considers himself to be a night owl.  He will stay up and work until 4am to get the work done. This hard working man loves his Fabiani suits and it will always look put together when meeting with investors, but other than that Henck doesn’t find brand names essential to his everyday life fashion style.  Henck also says that it is important to know what suits your body type and not necessary wear clothing just because it is fashionable at the moment.  It is so refreshing to see that there is other people, especially a guy, who knows the importance of not only dressing to suit your body, but keeping it in style.

For the inspiration for this look I styled I decided on these three pictures.  From the left is a picture I found on Pinterest and the one in the middle is of Henck himself and the last picture I also found on Pinterest.  When I asked Henck where would he like to travel to, he said the following:
   "I want to travel the world with only a backpack and without any luxuries such as fancy hotels, expensive restaurants, etc. I want to embed myself in the different cultures of the places I visit. I believe there are much to be learned from people of different backgrounds, and cultures, other than our own. I wish everybody in SA would realize this and start to learn from each other and celebrate our differences, instead of condemning these differences and only focusing on one’s own race and culture."

So I used this as an inspiration for styling him a look to travel in style.

As mentioned above, I wanted to style Henck an outfit where he can travel the world, see new places and meet new people.  When travelling you must carry as few as possible things with you - thus I decided to style only one outfit, but with multiple items that can be used to mix and match for other looks.  First of all I found this amazing Shawl-collar jersey and I decided to pair this up with a stone coloured straight fit jean.  When it comes to shoes, comfort is key so this pair of Suede Slip on Shoes was the perfect choice for this outfit!  When it comes to accessories I chose to keep it simple, but still stylish.  First of all is the beautiful links stich scarf from Trenery and furthermore I decided to use a pair of aviator sunglasses, a must-have Crane Apparel wood watch and of course the television brooch from Stiki to always remind Henck that he is amazing at what he does in the entertainment industry.  When travelling a backpack is a must have and this grey retreat backpack in mid-grey was the perfect choice.  Complete this look by adding the boy wash for men and Henck has all the necessities to travel the world!
