I headed off to the Guess SS19 launch on Friday morning, my first fast-fashion event in over a year. Winter in Cape Town showed off for a change so it seemed prophetic that the collection was titled ‘Paradise’. The sentiment was further endorsed by an idyllic poolside venue nestled behind the luxurious One & Only hotel at the V&A Waterfront. On arrival, my guest Duncan Pape and I were met by A-List Communications PR exec Gaby Trathen and Guess marketing manager Carla Davis. Remember her name because the story gets juicy.
Glass of white wine in hand, (odd for 11am but no complaints), Duncan and I were lead into a sun-kissed, palm-fronded space, ie aforementioned paradise. A DJ in the corner pumped cool lounge beats as trays of mini eats sashayed by. We refrained from dining, happy with wine in paradise.
Take a long lazy look at what we saw.
