The HUGO BOSS party went down in a gorgeous venue called “The Lookout” at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront last week. I attended it with my brother and was super impressed with what greeted me.
Here is more about the event, taken from the Little Black Book PR & Events Facebook Page:
On the evening of December 13, HUGO BOSS presented the BOSS Mens- and Womenswear Collections for Spring 2013 at “The Lookout” in Cape Town.
Around 600 guests – including local VIPs, media representatives, customers and business partners – had been invited to spend an unforgettable evening discovering the world of BOSS in this exclusive and relaxed atmosphere. With its clean, distilled design, the location – which simultaneously afforded a beautiful view of the Table Mountain and the ocean with the HUGO BOSS Hospitality Boat – was the perfect fit for the sophisticated BOSS looks.
The event also featured a special live performance by the acclaimed South African band “Mi Casa”. The skipper Alex Thomson, sponsored by HUGO BOSS, who is currently taking part in the Vendée Globe round-the-world race in the HUGO BOSS racing yacht, welcomed the guests via a video message. Light summer fare, champagne and a choice of cocktails were served after the performance.
The BOSS core brand features perfect, elegant looks with a strong focus on fine fabrics and refined details. It offers a rich array of sophisticated modern classics for business-, leisure- and eveningwear in perfect quality and precision fits.
Special thank you to our sponsors Pernod Ricard who provided Mumm champagne and Jameson Reserve amongst other brands, Ceres Fruit Juice, Cruz Vodka, Peroni, Ryk Neethling Wine. Another thanks to Jan Malan and his incredible fashion team, Marios Company for Hair, Annalize Buchanan for her delicious catering, Wayne Krull from Phoenix 5 Lighting, Bombshell for the stunning waitresses dresses and the V&A Waterfront and Chattels for all their incredible support in making this event a success
I wore a dress by designer Benita Allen who has a stunning label Chica Loca .. stylish ladies boutiques are scattered around the country including in Sandton, Cape Town and Durban. It was such a unique dress, totally original! A Gold longsleeve cocktail dress which was so easy to wear and truly made me feel one of a kind. I remember I spent some time during the day flying around the city to find the perfect accessories to match with it.
I actually ended up finding a stunning little clutch from Accessorize in Cavendish with ring & earrings from Sass Diva and shoes from Nine West. Now before you have a heart attack don’t worry I didn’t buy all that just for this event, I’m not that extravagant! The shoes were bought in London a while ago 😉
I really enjoyed meeting up with all my friends – bloggers, actors, presenters, celebrities, sports stars, you name it they were all there! Even Kevin Spacey himself made an appearance!
I just wish I had been a bit more diligent with my camera… but hey, when you’re being fed free oysters and champagne who’s thinking about that? 🙂
We sipped, we nibbled, we socialized & soon we watched the fashion show… Here is a clip my good friend and fellow blogger, Monde Mtsi, took of the show:
