Styled By Me Competition – Episode 3

Watch now: 

In this special Father’s Day episode, we put Father and Son against each other. Classic vs Modern, Conservative vs Edgy… their taste and style couldn’t be more different. Let’s see if they can take into consideration each others preferences and add a bit of their own flavour to the looks.

Each episode features two contestants going head-to-head to style each other based on a brief provided on the day at the store. The brief is based on a specific “life” event that each contestant needs to dress their opponent for. The look needs to be appropriate for both the occasion and the body type.


In Episode 3, contestants Thato Cele and Vincent Cele, father and son, went head-to-head to best achieve the brief given. In this episode, the themes were:

  • Date Night
  • A night out at a Jazz concert

Watch how the contestants run around the John Craig store in the limited 15 minute time frame to try and put looks together. Luckily, each contestant is paired with a John Craig sales assistant, they know their way around the store and what is new and trending. At John Craig it is about the service and shopping experience and the sales assistants featured in the episode are always there to assist you next time you visit the store.


Jean-Claude (JC) Kabobole, our esteemed and hilarious judge supports the contestants through-out and is not shy to give his comments on the teams selections. The judge’s panel comprising of two staff members and our beloved host JC, critique the looks based on the following criteria:

  1. The overall look
  2. How close they came to meeting the brief
  3. How the ‘model’ feels in the outfit


Each competitor is given an opportunity to share their thoughts on the outfit they’ve been styled in. The contestants’ then comment on the styling selected and synergy to their personality and occasion.

After some deliberation, the judges then deliver their verdict and choose a winner.

The winner receives a R5000 John Craig shopping voucher.
