from the vault: elle rising star awards

Last week Thursday is blur. From the Sunglass Hut Inner Circle lunch event to the Elle Rising Star Design Awards in the evening, a lot of fashion happened to me. Not that I am complaining, because that is exactly the way I like it. 
Held at the Shine Studios in Braamfontein, the Elle Rising Star Design Awards to quote Vie Arem in her post about the event were “run with military-style professionalism” because they actually started on time. Luckily for once in my life I actually didn’t get caught up in getting my liquid liner to look perfect and I made it just when editor Jacky Burger was welcoming everyone to the awards.

I really enjoyed Mr Price’s Amber Jones collection and have completely fallen in love with Ruan Jooste’s work. The uber sports luxe aesthetic with its simple clean lines focusing on form and shape is completely up my alley. In fact it was so up my alley I felt like it was necessary to tell him that his work is incredible and he responded by handing me his business card and telling me to contact him because he is going to be big real soon. Love it!
Hope to be buying all of the 8 finalists collections soon. ShopSA is a serious thing folks! We have a lot of very talented designers and craftsman right here at home.
