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.

‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a philosophy in a sense, we want to have a different cut to make us more unique, ‚Äú¬†Ronnie McDonald, responsible for the menswear tailoring department, tells me, ‚ÄúIt can mean a detail, it can mean a silhouette, fabric. It‚Äôs the idea that we‚Äôre constantly striving to be unique in some ways.‚ÄĚ 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. ‚ÄúWe 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.‚ÄĚ says Fredrik, ‚ÄúA bit of rock and roll.‚ÄĚ
