Cool, edgy beats set the tone at Cassia, Nitida’s restaurant on the lake, as a collection of SA’s top designers strutted their fall looks down the runway on 8 May, 2015.
Offering a diverse platform to the fashion industry with an integration of couture, dance, music and culture, industry leaders Craig Port, Stefania Morland, Jagadi Couture, Australian born Bo&Luca and rising star Joanna Hedley captivated guests with their autumn and spring collections, coupled with a preview of BeachCult’s upcoming summer range. KarenFay jewellery added a sparkling touch to both Port and Jagadi’s runway collections, with Diesel eyewear offering an added layer of cool.
The who’s who of the VIP arena, including the likes of fashion moguls Cindy Nell and Ilse Fourie, gathered in bustling anticipation whilst sipping on Nitida Matriarch MCC or Bisquit cocktails, and enjoying a FoxBox express manicure in the opulent Bisquit Lounge. Nash Music seeded an enchanted auditory ambience whilst flashes illuminated the courtyard, capturing guests in their finest cocktail attire. Delicious Cassia canapés circulated throughout the evening compliments of Mediterranean Delicacies.
Master of ceremonies, the gorgeous Natalie Becker, lead guests through the art filled eve, dovetailed by incredible performances from Tulu Entertainment, and fabulosity duo – the Marylinz – adding interesting interludes between each designer. Following the production, guests were offered gift bags complete with Nimue and Kérastase products, Bisquit, Superbalist and Danté Wellness Spa vouchers, Prestige Magazines, Mediterranean Delicacies products and more as they headed back into the courtyard for the cocktail party heated up with a live performance by the fantastic ShenFM.
To ensure guests could commute safely to and from the venue Uber offered credit vouchers for first time users.
“We are ecstatic about the turnout of this year’s show! Each of the designers ranges were just so absolutely breath-taking, and the performances in between were sensational. All the guests dressed up to the nines, and of course all those involved pulled out all the stops to make it work. A massive thanks to Ampere, Devon Anderson Concept, StyleBar, The Make-up Issue and each of our fantastic sponsors for making this event possible.” – Jade Allen, Red Carpet Concepts.
