On Thursday 21 September, we hosted our first Fashion Show. Titled ‘ he #DareToHaveAttitude Transition Collection’ we re-introduced our style boutique as a shopping destination for fresh, fun, ready-to-wear clothing suited to both our regular clients, tourists visiting Cape Town for the season, and you.
The sterling event was produced by spa consultant and stylist Duncan Pape’ and Social Media & Marketing Manager Clouds Drummond. Here, our exclusive guest list of loyal clients, business partners, family and friends sipped delicious Belvedere Vodka cocktails while tapping their designer heels to beats dropped by DJ Sox, both compliments of Cafe Caprice. Our nail and hair section was converted into an impressive runway, and saw 19 of Cape Town’s finest models from Boss Models South Africa, Twenty Model Management, booking agent Nicole Naude and – much to our clients’ surprise – Langaro’s incredible staff. Each wore two looks from the latest summer collections of the brands we stock; Cape Town’s Zeit Geist, Italian brand Lui Jo, French brand LE TEMPS DES CERISES and London’s Great Plains and CREAM CLOTHING.
Hair design saw the launch of Langaro’s Braid Bar, spearheaded by our fabulous team Rochelle Davids, Gailene Thora and Gabriel Verreynne. Nail colours chosen by our therapists Fatima Patience, Salome Sylvester, Caroline Manyandgadze and Khanyi Dhlomo showcased ‘California Dreamin’, the latest summer range from OPI South Africa.
Makeup took on a dewy, summer beach look created by Langaro director Kirsty Da Costa, and freelance makeup artists Roxanne Sayers and Nadine Fischer.
All models wore basic white trainers with their outfits, creating a vibey Camps Bay summer look styled by Duncan and Clouds. Each outfit could easily transition from day to night by simply changing your shoes, hence the title, The Transition Collection.
On the night, we also launched our Fashion Shoppers Loyalty Card. The card is awarded to clients who purchase two fashion items or more which earns a 20% discount on that purchase and any other fashion purchase for one year. All clothing in our fashion boutique is being featured on Instagram; follow @Iangarostyle for daily style tips, pricing and item availability.
The evening was a raging success; which encouraged us to make this a bi-annual event. We cannot sufficiently express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who came out to support our fashion show and making it such a resounding success. A special thank you needs to go out to photographers Anton Van Zyl and Toby Osborne-Geldenhuys for capturing the magical event and again; our incredible staff who totally owned the night. Then the afterparty at Cafe Caprice hit!…
