PRADA, DOLCE & GABBANA, GUCCI, JIMMY CHOO, BURBERRY, GIORGIO ARMANI, VERSACE and other luxury brands saluted guests at Sandton City and Sunday Times #THEEDIT #COMETOTHECITY event on Thursday 29 September.
Fashion and a falcon took centre stage at the Diamond Walk with Sandtonistas sipping champagne and nibbling sushi whilst being welcomed by Aspasia Karras. Giorgio Armani’s sales executives were introducing Armani Black with gloved hands, where the colours grey, blue and pomegranate were complementing the black designs.
With only one garment per size and style, one is assured of a glamourous, unique look from Gucci, with a large selection of dazzling bags and shoes to add on. Versace’s magnificent marble floor mirrors a circular design in Donatella’s home, and the organic walls houses adorable designer children’s items too.
Impressive and known for their killer heels, Jimmy Choo introduced a new, classic line with reinforced heels. The fragrances are sassy, and on my ‘top 5’ perfume list. Prada launched their 2016 Fall Winter collection amongst trays of tasty canapés, whisky and champagne – all served in style by men in designer suits.
My absolute favourite store on the Diamond Walk is Dolce & Gabanna , and with host Alex, one is assured of a well tailored tour of the burgundy clad store. Turkish marble, damask and velvet emphasize the collections of designer fashion. A black first line dress with tulips embroidered by hand, spells the quality and tradition of their designs. One is surprised by touches of bright green palm leaf, deep purple and saffron yellow.
It was late when I untied my satin armband that gave me access to the exclusive reader event.
As promised, it was indeed the party of my fashion dreams.
