I attended one of my Favorite events of the year the SA style awards.It took place at the Hyde Park Corner Mall in Johannesburg.Which was the perfect atmosphere , well where else would a fashionista feel at home but in a mall.
On arrival was a blue carpet where there were photos being taken as well as pampering of guests.Fox Box made sure that guests had their nails on point.Also pampering guests was Glow with Intraceutical glow mist.
Aisha Baker and myself on the blue carpet.I wore a Gabriella Fraser design creation.
The food at the event was spectacular made by top Tsogo Sun chefs.Guests at the event also enjoyed Ashbourne & Southern Right Wines, Grey Goose cocktails, GM & Ahrens champagne and San Pellegrino & Aqua Panna waters.One of my favorite entertainment elements at the event was the animation ballon pit.It was such a fun element that all guests enjoyed.
