A great day
The Cell C team and opposing players from Zimbabwe battled it out, concluding the friendly match with a 3-2 victory for Cell C. African Fashion International identified young, emerging designers to showcase their work on the day as part of a fashion theatre which featured celebrity guests and a performance by award-winning artist, Lira.
The theatre also had performances from two female contortionists of the Ria Nagel Acrobatic Studio and four ballerinas from the Jo’burg Ballet. Radio DJ and TV presenter Tumi Vorster, musician and designer Nhlanhla Nciza and Miss Mamelodi Sundowns Matlala Mokoko stunned guests as they walked the ramp.
Rich Mnisi, Khothatso Tsotetsi and Tuelo Nguyuza delighted their audience with exciting and edgy designs while Lira, who has supported breast cancer campaigns over the years brought a beautiful soul to the show.
Clarins treated guests at the Pink Polo to neck, back, shoulder and hot stone massages throughout the day while SOHO offered them express manicures and pedicures. Franco International and GHD gave the ladies quick, fabulous makeovers as well.
