Rharha Nembhard by Kristen-Lee Moolman

Our newest style profile Rharha/Dronegoddess has been living in Bangkok for the last 3 and half years, where she runs her jewellery company Dronesociety.

“I moved here from from South Africa to just submerge myself in another culture. I wanted to have nothing to fall back on and no subculture to blend into so i could create my own’. It seems certainly seems to have been a smart business move with, which has been taking off recently via some high profile endorsements “I started drone jewels about year or so ago for fun but then people started to take it really seriously and artists like Azelia Banks started to wear it”. “Living in bangkok is intense” she told us. “It has an amazing spiritual side to it and then a dark twisted meth/ sex tourist side to it, the two completely contradict one another but that’s what makes it so weird and amazing at the same time”.

And how’s she getting on with putting her subcultural stamp on the place? “I just brought Total Freedom out to Bangkok as part of LA’s Fade To Mind crew for a party I threw. I’m trying to bring out more artists and change/create the scene in Bangkok. I also work with a few other artists that are part of Dronesociety – Petite Noir who is about to blow, signed to Domino Records and also Zandi who is my basically my twin, she’s currently exploring Ethopia and Jordan. We are dropping our new line of jewels in June”.
Rharha met photographer Kristin when she gave her some Tequila after shooting Petite Noir for GQ. Kristin was only meant to be staying for 6 days but was so taken with it she ended up sticking around for a whole month. Keep your eye out for future projects between the two of them!
