South Africa’s most glamorous polo event of the annual social calendar is set to take place for the third year running on Saturday 23rd February 2013 at Val de Vie Estate outside Cape Town. Jenni Button and Hilton Weiner have been announced as the official Fashion Partners for the 2013 Veuve Clicquot Masters. A Hilton Weiner & Jenni Button Fashion Show will form part of the day’s activities, while Creative Director for the brands, Warrick Gautier, will be a judge in the Best Dressed competition for the day. Veuve Clicquot Masters Cape Town, one of five international tournaments, is their first and only on the African continent. Proven a resounding success and enjoyed by SA’s glamorous elite, guests include top celebrities, fashionable socialites and avid polo lovers. VIP Guests who attend last year included, Jeannie D, Jo-Ann Strauss, Ryk Neethling, Natalie Becker, and Roxy Louw with media personality Clayton Morar, model Gina Goldsmith and socialite Thandie Kupe.

The Veuve Clicquot Masters Cape Town has grown considerably since its first year and is expected to draw in more than 1200 guests this year. Val de Vie’s world-class polo fields and luxurious club house facilities provide the ideal venue to host an event of this caliber.

The Jenni Button Summer 2013 Collection, Journey to Marrakech, focuses on sensual modern cuts and shapes to suit the strong independent Jenni woman’s insatiable love of glamour, opulence and pleasure. Introducing exotic animal prints such as snake, leopard and crocodile in gold, silver and metallic shades, the collection is juxtaposed with splashes of colour – from bright aqua and teal, to azure blue, sea green and coral. Neutrals still form the foundation of the collection, mixed with bold geometric prints. Jenni will showcase its exclusive Couture Collection at this year’s Polo event. The Hilton Weiner Summer 2013 Resort Collection sees the introduction of sand washed silk, reverse silk, quality linen, and leather. There is also an array of architecturally inspired prints and Bugle-cut bead embellishments that can be found on Midi and Maxi dresses and selected blouses in the women’s wear collection.
