It always adds a little extra festiveness at AFI (African Fashion InternationalMercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town when you see a few friend saunter down the catwalk, and Ruald Rheeder‘s floral inspired Spring/Summer 2014 collection included some of my favorite faces. Television and radio personality Leigh-Anne Williams, models Tyrone NellBrent Thompson (have you seen his recent Men’s Health SA cover???), another Men’s Health cover boy Ryan Botha (also co-owner of Point Break Fitness in Cape Town) showed off their beautifully toned bodies at Ruald’s show. The new boys on the block, The K2 Twins (Alex & Charlie Kotze) also made an appearance. Despite his selection of models, it was certainly Ruald’s bold choices in design and his ability to keep his eye on pulse of internationally trending fashion that kept the audience captivated. Hey Ruald… I need a new designer for Summer, hint, hint!!

Keeping to a simple neutral palette in his womenswear collection, Ruald’s expression of summer is epitomized by simple elegance. From light flowing evening dresses to trendy day wear and provocative swimwear, this collection, in my opinion lends itself to the 1950’s and 1960’s demure elegance and sophistication, which can be dressed up for a night out on the town.

From being the official cognac of Air France Concorde to gracing the tables of royalty, Biscuit celebrates the finer things in life. With that spirit, Bisquit Cognac launched in South Africa with a lavish launch event held at the Crossley & Webb showroom in Cape Town. It was a wonderful evening with our host for the night Bob Mabena and guests including actor Bjorn Steinbach with his model girlfriend Alex McGregor as well as television personality, Danine Naidoo, comedian Siv Ngesi, cricketer Robin Peterson with his fiancée Portia Braaf. Also in attendance was socialites Thandie Kupe, Busi Nyeti, Rafeeka Allie and fashion blogger Jasna Zellerhoff.
