Hip Hop fashion

HIp Hop fashion
Hip Hop is a popular fashion brand in South Africa - they make awesome dresses! Seeing this sign reminded me of a year or two ago when Kerry-Anne won a prize - a custom-designed and fitted ball gown by Hip Hop. Unfortunately, even though they got the advertising mileage, Hip Hop never actually gave Kerry-Anne that dress... which sucked quite some, I'm sure you'll agree. :(

The Traffic fashion show at Trinity

The Traffic fashion show at Trinity
If you follow Cape Town Daily Photo closely you may remember that I wrote about Traffic Clothing's 2011 Winter Collection in March this year. Well, as you may have noticed, summer has arrived and consequently Traffic timed the release of their 2011 Summer Collection just perfectly.

I, and a few hundred other folk, spent the evening at Trinity Supperclub (a restaurant in Cape Town) being entertained by DJ's and treated to delectable chocolate delights from Café Le Chocolatier in Franschhoek. After a little patient waiting the first of the 10 models descended from an iron staircase to the catwalk to display some of what Traffic Clothing's store will be stocked with for Summer.

If you'd like to see a few more photos (besides for those below) - I've uploaded a few of the models in action to a Facebook album here.

2011 Luxlife Fashion Show

2011 Luxlife Fashion Show
Red Carpet Concepts hosted the 2011 Luxlife Fashion Show at the beautiful 15 on Orange African Pride Hotel. Needless to say - since I guess it's obvious from the photos, Kerry-Anne and I were among the lucky ones to be invited along. :)

The evening started off with us enjoying canapés, drinks (kindly sponsored by Pongracz, Bisquit, Nederburg, and Peroni), and smooth tones from an electric cello - played by the lovely Carol Thorns. As the evening progressed, the music switched to beats produced by DJ Lady M as the models took to the ramp wearing clothes by Stefania Morland, Philosophy, Jagadi Haute Couture and Jenni Button.

If you've never been to a fashion show before, I encourage you to spend the money and do something different. The evening was stylish, filled with beauty, and generally a lot of fun.

Glitz, glamour and fashion with Traffic

Fashion Show

Traffic Clothing's 2011 winter collection fashion show was the first fashion show that I've ever attended - assuming that we're not counting the handful of amateur high school fashion shows that I sat through while still in school.

The show was awesome: something that you really should attend if you're interested in modern fashion, if you find FTV at all entertaining, or even if you'd simply like to try something out of the ordinary. The evening was a glitzy and stylish affair and had everyone socialising, drinking cocktails, and eating tasty canapés.

The only negative thing that I can say about the show was that it may have awakened Kerry-Anne's shopping demon... in fact, she's already tracked down the location of the two Traffic Clothing stores in Cape Town! Traffic have a store located at 195-197 Long Street (+27 21 426 0465) as well as a slightly more accessible (for us, anyway) store at the Canal Walk shopping centre (+27 21 5519740).
