fabulous woman magazine launch event

Fabulous Woman Magazine Launch, Jo-Ann Strauss, Denzil Jacobs, Boitumelo Thulo, Edith Venter

Honoured to have been selected to photograph the cover of the inaugural issue of Fabulous Woman Magazine, I was invited to attend the magazine launch event held at the Radisson Blue Hotel in Johannesburg on Woman’s Day, last Thursday. It was an evening of glamour and inspiration as Fabulous Woman Magazine payed tribute to women who have strived for success in their own way. Guest speakers at the event included Edith Venter as well as influential women in poetry, philanthropy and media. The guest of honour for the evening was the magazine’s first cover woman, Jo-Ann Strauss – A beautiful woman, inside and out. Guests including SABC1 Zoned‘s Boitumelo Thulo and speakers Professor Mamokgethi Setati and Mickey Mashile were also treated to a special FabroSanz Creations fashion show before indulging in delicious canapés and drinks.

Thank you to Craig Port for dressing me for the evening and the prestigious Marion On Nicol Boutique Hotel in Sandton for accommodation.

Fabulous Woman Magazine – An inspirational woman’s magazine – will be on sale in October 2012. For now, follow @FabWomanMagazine on Twitter for updates and for a sneak-peek of the cover.
