A fashion brand that needs absolutely no introduction, Calvin Klein opened it’s doors in Cape Town, South Africa in November 2014 with a soiree to rival all others. SA’s top celebrities and socialites including Cosmopolitan Magazine SA‘s Sexiest Man 2014 & TV Personality Jonathan Boynton-Lee, TV personality Maps Maponyane and Syfy Channel‘s Dominion actress Kim Engelbrecht took to the red carpet at this prestigious launch event. With mouth watering hors d’oevres, champagne and wine to celebrate, I was delighted to see so many friends and familiar faces including JP Duminy with his gorgeous wife Sue Duminy, Cindy Nell, Catriona AndrewTy Keogh, Tanya van Graan with her husband Kasper Kristoffersen, Tammy B, Bjorn Steinbach, Roxy Louw and, always willing to help with anything, comedian Anne Hirsch showed me around the store (pics on Denzil Jacobs Photography Facebook Page tomorrow). It certainly was a spectacular evening and after taking a look around the store, it’s all about casual chic for men and women (jeans starting at around R1800.00 per pair) all the way to formal suiting for men and everyone’s favourite, Calvin Klein underwear for men an women. All current ranges on par with what you’d find at CK globally.

Stop by at Calvin Klein at V&A Waterfront and pick up a little something CK… you know you want to!

the 154th annual l’ormarins queen’s plate

01.18-LOrmarins-Queens-Plate-Bonang-Matheba-Maps-Maponyane-Ryk-Neethling-Cindy-Nell-Liezel-Van-Der-Westhuizen-Denzil-Jacobs

Without a doubt the event I look forward to most in January each year, the prestigious and ever elegant 154th L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate took place last week in Cape Town. I was graciously invited and immediately made my way to Hilton Weiner to discuss outfit options, as this event’s dress-code is strictly blue and white. As always, the kind folks at Hilton Weiner prepared a few options for me and you can see what we ended up with on my Facebook Page, but back to the event itself.

No surprise, South Africa’s favourite personalities donned their finest blue & white, not forgetting intricate fascinators and hats, as the races and betting got underway. In the indulgent Stud Club Marquee, guests included Bonang Matheba (wearing Gert-Johan Coetzee), Nthato Mashishi, Jo-Ann Strauss (wearing Stefania Morland), Cindy Nell, Natalie Becker, Jimmy Nevis, Ryk Neethling (with his gorgeous lady), Liezel van der Westhuizen and the ever dapper Mr Maps Maponyane, just to name a few! Socialites socialized, horse-racing enthusiasts placed bets and I, well I enjoyed an afternoon with some amazing people and friends, getting to do what I love most, take photographs. I think what’s most appealing about this event is the simple elegance of it all, it’s Hampton’s style in Cape Town with amazing food and drink and even more amazing company. No frills, just effortless style. This was my fourth consecutive LQP, and it remains a firm favorite. Don’t ask me about the races tho, I don’t remember seeing any horses *wink*!

A previously unreleased photograph of South African fitness writer (The Jog Blog), model, television personality (Survivor SA) and my good friend Brigitte Willers. As the seasons were changing from autumn to summer here in Cape Town late last year, Brigitte and I met at her beautiful home to do a little photoshoot. This is one of my favorite images from that shoot, aside from the photographs featuring her little boy, Sam. A wonderful day rounded off with a few splashes of champagne and sunny weather. Such a pleasure photographing you Brigitte!

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.
