Style icon, performance artist, songwriter and singer, Lindiwe Suttle has premiered a snippet of her debut single, “Man Made Moon” produced by Hamberg producer Benni Dernhoff, along with an accompanying behind the scenes video of the photo shoot shot by photographer Andrew Brauteseth. The behind the scenes video was directed by young talent fashion photographer, Roice Nel. True to form, Lindiwe’s behind the scenes video is packed with over-the-top costumes, quirky dance moves and her deep soulful voice sets the mood for the song. The single, Man Made Moon, is slated for April release.


Man Made Moon is another word for satellite. The story is about a modern day female stalker, a female satellite that is a bit delusional and stalks this particular guy on Earth. “I have been single for a while and there is a bit of a sense of desperation that I sometimes feel with myself and my other single friends. There is a lot of pressure to be in a relationship,” explains Lindiwe. “I wanted to release a fashion video along with a teaser of the single to pay tribute to the work of the creative team,” says Lindiwe.


Andrew Brauteseth as the stills photographer and the art director, and worked closely with Lindiwe to conceptualise the shoot. Andrew explains his vision for the shoot. “The original idea of the shoot was inspired by movement and dance. I wanted to blend both hard and soft movement and choreograph stills in a way that showed the song’s themes in a dramatic and unique way. The single “Man Made Moon” also has a lot of references to outer space, being out of touch and a sense of alienation on an emotional level. So the styling, the hair and the strong pieces of clothing from the designers adds to these layers of meaning. Hair was designed by innovator Kevin Epstein and makeup was done by Shanaaz Alexander, who has been Lindiwe’s makeup artist since the start of her music career in South Africa.


Style award winner, Lindiwe continues to work with South African designers and partnered with young design graduates Lara Klawikowski & Lameez Claasen and established SA jewellery designers Ida Elsje and Phillipa Green to create a truly futuristic look that captures the mood of “Man Made Moon”. The full length music video for “Man Made Moon” will be shot in May 2011. Lindiwe will again be collaborating with local designers, Lara Klawikowski, Ida Elsje, Philippa Green, Missibaba, and Suzaan Heyns to create looks for the music video.


Fashion designer Lara Klawikowski is the genius behind all of Lindiwe's fab looks. She designed the dresses that Lindiwe has rocked; the first made out of 20,000 condoms, this dress was commissioned for an AIDS awareness fashion show (Lara won 1st prize at the SACTWU fashion show for this design); the second a dress with the silver headpiece is made out of mattress stuffing, bicycle tire, inner tube of a car tire and plastic ice cream cups, she wore it to the Marie Claire Awards.
