LUXO attended a charity fashion show at the beautiful Welgemeend in Cape Town with 3 well known designers, Hendrik Vermeulen, Elbeth Gillis and Kobus Dippenaar and they showed off their couture collections, all to raise money for the "Reach for a Dream Children Foundation".
Myself and my blogger friend, Clouds Drummond from Andlollipops blog had the opportunity to go backstage before the show to see the ladies getting dolled up with hair and makeup by David Sharp. The hair was simple and classic with a low bun and the makeup enhanced the ladies natural beauty with soft shadows and natural lips.
The show started with Hendrik Vermeulen's Resort Collection and it was over the top with big hats, pastel colours and lace.
Elbeth Gillis showed us her simple and classic wedding gowns. It was elegant, flowy and very flattering on the female figure.
Kobus Dippenaar showed off his cocktail wear as well as couture gowns and the attention to detail made these gowns simply exquisite.
LUXO always support charity events and it doesn't get better than supporting children in need at the Reach for a Dream Foundation. Well done to all the designers and organisers for making this lovely event possible.
