Treasure Beach was born out of Donna Kincade’s love of fashion and her hometown – The Bluff in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. The brand was also established to created stylish, affordable fashion for all females running homes, businesses, and “let’s be honest – the world”.
“All things I personally “treasure”. Growing up I loved dressing and styling my friends. It gives me so much joy when someone feels good because they look good. It is this joy that sparked the flame that brought this passion to life in Treasure Beach the Brand! I am creative at heart and it has always been my dream to build a brand of my own that reflects both my passions and my values.
I am committed to supporting small, local businesses and with the help of local manufacturers, mostly from the South of Durban, using my own designs inspired by international trends. We are able to offer beautiful, high-quality products at an affordable price. We aim to be led by inspiration and so will not only add new designs seasonally but also whenever my fancy strikes,” says Donna.

Egoliwood put up a brave front and showed solidarity, as they weathered a storm through trying times as the world, is faced with a pandemic. South Africa’s favourite soapie stars brought the glitz and glam as they graced the red carpet during a studio recording and gathered to celebrate fellow thespians who were recognised for their commitment to their craft and playing a vital role in the performing arts.
The show kicked into gear with the announcement of the winners in the technical categories honouring outstanding editing, lighting, art direction and directing teams in a soapie. Ushered by the sound of award-winning songstress, Shekinah with her track ‘What a Love’.
The creative categories followed paying homage to the writing teams that pens imagination to tell stories loved by viewers alongside the beauty gurus (make-up and hair) and fashionistas (wardrobe) that sets the trends in the make-believe world of soapies.
One of the highlights of this year’s awards show was a special moment with the public vote winner and superfan, Frans Mohale who co-presented the public vote category the Most Popular Soapie of the Year alongside Lootlove.

“This season is the biggest show yet for The Royalty Soapie Awards as we celebrated our novelty of first experiences from giving a superfan a platform to co-present an award; introducing two new recognition awards and featuring a tribute to those who are no longer with us. We are honoured at the support that keeps on pouring in from sponsors, media partners, viewers and my fellow actors,” says Winnie Ntshaba, Founder and CEO of the RSAs.

The Matchy Matchy Collection is a passion project of Liezl Craig-Swart. She relates how the brand came about.
‘Matchy Matchy’ is a saying my sister and I concocted to describe our habit of compulsively pairing the outfit we are wearing with the same colour accessory. Everything has to match: gold earrings with a golden bracelet; not rose gold. A pink scarf with the darker shade of pink sweater. If you do not have a jacket to go with the dress you are wearing, you would rather go cold than throw a mismatch over your shoulders.
My mother and the 80’s are to blame for our fixation. You know, the years when women used to dye their handbags and shoes to match their shoulder-padded dresses. My mom’s obsession started with matching home-sewn dresses for herself and my older sister and evolved into turning my sister and I into twins despite the four-year age gap. From there it escalated to colour-coding jewellery to each home-made outfit.
And that, my friends, is how our mom became one of the pioneers for polymer clay jewellery. No, it was not the boho hippy chicks that came up with the idea. Polymer clay has been around for ages, and my mom used it to create clip-on earrings with matching bulky beaded necklaces in 1985.
The Matchy Matchy Collection aims to carry that legacy forward. We started this passion project in July 2019 and since then started a sister branch in Malta when my sister moved there in November.
Polymer clay is pigmented and sculpted into a design which is then baked to cure them. The material is extremely lightweight and can withstand being dropped. Saying that they should still be handled with care. I create one-of-kind handcrafted earrings from this material and only repeat a design on request. Since it is handmade, no design will ever look like another. I create small ranges in a colour scheme or pattern, and each pair is usually in a different design. Taking into consideration that this brand was born out of a love of perfectly coordinated outfits, I love creating custom designs on request. So, if you have a special outfit and can’t find the perfect accessory, you know who to contact.
