Fashion week ends with a bang

16 April 2010 | Story by Newsroom


The UCT RAG Fashion Week ended on a high note when students-turned-models strutted their stuff along the catwalk at a packed FVT Dining Lounge in Cape Town on 10 April.

A total of 29 models donned local and international designs at the show. UCT student and designer Oliver Strange was named as the winner, and was awarded an internship with Nkhensani Nkosi of Stoned Cherrie. The entire event was sponsored by Peroni.

The show followed on the heels of the UCT RAG Dance-Off, which took place at the Baxter Theatre Hall on 7 April. The dance competition is a platform for aspiring dancers in Cape Town who wanted to showcase their talent. Uniq dance group won the competition.

About 800 people attended the fashion show, while a further 500 made their way to the after-party.

"The turnout was good, the models looked gorgeous, and the event went very smoothly," reported Shannon Cumming, Fashion Week project manager.

Other events during the fashion week were a photography competition, which was won by Jade Howell, taking away a Nikon D3000 camera courtesy of Orms; and the Boss Model Search competition, which was clinched by Senzo Luthuli. Luthuli won a contract with Boss Models worth R35 000.

Cumming said this year's fashion week theme was All Kinds of Chic, and, as usual, the project aimed to raise funds for SHAWCO's outreach projects.
