With a legacy for excellence in fashion and clothing design perfected over 110 years, Tiger Of Sweden has opened it’s doors in Cape Town. Guests including singer Danny K, television personalities Jennifer Su, Liezel van der Westhuizen and Leigh-Anne Williams, actress Vanessa Haywood as well as former Miss South Africa Nicole Flint were invited to enjoy an evening of fine fashion, canapés and champagne at the official launch of the new Tiger of Sweden at the V&A Waterfront. It was certainly a spectacular event with models showcasing some of the brands most iconic and modern pieces while guests browsed the collections and tried a few garments on.

It’s a philosophy in a sense, we want to have a different cut to make us more unique, “ Ronnie McDonald, responsible for the menswear tailoring department, tells me, “It can mean a detail, it can mean a silhouette, fabric. It’s the idea that we’re constantly striving to be unique in some ways.” Over a glass of sauvignon blanc at the Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town, I chatted with Fredrik Folkesson, Product Manager and Head Sourcer Denim, about their jeans. “We looked at the market, we wanted to do a different cut when it came to silhouettes and fits, to [take] out the cow-boy and put in the rockstar instead.” says Fredrik, “A bit of rock and roll.”

Later, the festivities continued as a select few guests were invited to enjoy dinner and champagne at Shimmy Beach Club. One of Cape Town’s hottest summer spots, the evening was enjoyed by celebrities and some of South Africa’s top bloggers including Leigh van den Berg, Elrico Bellingan, Karisa Nichols, Clouds Drummond and Jasna Zellerhoff.

Jen Su (Jennifer Su) 01

I recently visited Jen Su at her luxurious Penthouse apartment at the 15 On Orange Hotel in Cape Town. With an impressive television news anchor resume in Hong Kong, China and Asia, Jen is currently a TV News Anchor for Summit TV and Sky News “The African Business Report” as well as entertainment news presenter on SABC3’s The Expresso Show and Flash. She’s also the Hollywood Reporter on 5FM’s Gareth Cliff Mornings radio show. What many people may not know is that is that Jen Su is also a Corporate MC and Singer. “Busy and happy!  I’m MC’ing a lot of corporate events which keeps me very busy on the days that I’m not on TV or radio” says Su.

Jen Su considers herself as a strong networker and well organized person and feels fortunate to have been in a position to help others over the years, “I’m forever grateful for the many people who have believed in me” says Su. Jen has certainty been fortunate to work with some of South Africa’s biggest celebrities, walking red carpets at numerous prestigious events all over the world, including the Cannes Film Festival and New York Fashion Week, and meeting singer Mariah Carey at the One&Only Cape Town gala with Sol Kerzner. Another highlight she mentioned was teaching the Diski Dance to the Diepsloot schoolchildren during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. She recently took part in Danny K‘s latest music video and is looking forward to being one of the presenters and singers for the upcoming South African Music Awards.
