craig port spring/summer 2015 men’s swimwear launch


As we usher in a new summer in Cape Town, South African fashion designer Craig Port hosted his much anticipated Spring/Summer Men’s Swimwear Collection in association with South African Menswear Week at The Glen Boutique Hotel & Spa in Sea Point, Cape Town. It was a poolside affair with guests including tv personalities Ewan Strydom (who joined the boys on the ramp strutting his stuff), Leigh-Anne Williams and Kia Johnson as well as model/presenter Tyrone Nell, fashion bloggers Jasna Zellerhoff and Clouds Drummond and of cause myself. Welcomed with an Aperol Spritz, we were all serenaded by Acoustic Element who set the tone for a sweltering afternoon to celebrate the official opening of the summer swimwear season.


Fashion Producer Jen Denier and Craig Port worked together to create a swimwear display that few will soon forget. Superstars from BOSS Models were cast to join the #PORTSQUAD and strut their stuff around the venue before congregating for the shows-topping finale were Zolani Mahola from Freshly Ground treated guests to a surprise performance.
With models, swimwear and poolside boutique hotel setting, it was the perfect way to enjoy a summer’s day and of cause some eye-candy (for those interested *wink*).

cintron pink polo 2015 (cape town)

Last Saturday, 07 November 2015, once again saw South Africa’s elite dust off their fascinators for a day of polo tournaments at the 6th Annual Cintron Pink Polo in support of raising awareness of breast cancer at Val de Vie Estate in Paarl, Cape Town. I was delighted to have been invited again this year and equally delighted to see Lee-Ann Liebenberg with her hubby, Nicky van der Walt, both dressed to the occasion as always. Nicky didn’t saddle up this time around, which left more time for the two to enjoy the tournament with their friends and each other. Dressed by Peta Eggierth Symes for Pallu, Jennifer Su, who by the way just last week released her first book titled From Z to A Lister, looked ravishing. “The Shores” reality TV show creator Quinton van der Burgh was also in attendance and I had a chance to catch up with his lovely girlfriend, Courtney Cousins, who spilled the beans to me about her ready to wear fashion label/line, look out for that! Another highlight was catching up with Ryk Neethling and his fiancé Sahar Binaiz, wow, she is gorgeous. All in all it was a wonderful day at the estate and Cintron Pink Polo and Val de Vie Estate certainly pull out all the stops to create a world class event with host for the day, the stunning Tanya van Graan.
