For the second year running, iconic South African designer, activist and creative thinker, Gavin Rajah, has joined forces with national retail giant, Pick n Pay, to create a platform for fashion designers to showcase their leading-edge work at the Cape Town Resort Collection show, #CTRC2020.
This year’s winning designers of the Futurewear incubator project, born out of the Cape Town Resort Collections, are Zarah Cassim and Sipho Mbuto. This collaboration with Pick n Pay in 2021 is sure to fast-track their success in the local fashion industry.
With the world coming to a halt, and then slowly but surely emerging from what has been one of the most challenging periods in modern history, the concept of resort life, luxury and relaxation have seen a shift across form, function and spirit.
We seek the comfort of versatility, joyful authenticity and beauty, underpinned by escapism that feels both restorative and inspiring. The Cape Town Resort Collections capture this very sentiment, while also introducing the likes of a curated collective of seven designers to a captive, fashion-forward audience.
Says Hazel Pillay, Pick n Pay Clothing GM, “Through this collaboration, we will work with some of South Africa’s most talented young designers to create accessibility to designer fashion for our customers at affordable prices.”
The show taking place on 5 December at the Blaauklippen Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. Tickets are available for sale at www.plankton.mobi.
