I had the delightful pleasure of attending StyleSociety’s pop-up boutique held at The Forum in the V & A Hotel. For those of you who don’t know, Kumari Govender (editor at StyleSociety) is my aunt & fashion mentor, so I’ve basically been anticipating this event for a long time! Guests & shoppers were treated to drinks at the door (which I didn’t really have because I was just so eager to go inside), & the goodie bags were filled with lots of cool stuff & vouchers. South African designers got a chance to showcase their luxurious brands at the shopping event. I bought a gorgeous maxi floral dress from the locally designed Anneen Henze brand. The brand’s motto, “Where stylish chic meets comfort” lives up to its name and I found so many feminine garments that I loved at the Anneen Henze stand! The cape/bolero pictured above can be custom-made for you, by the way. You can order from their website here: www.anneenhenze.co.za
Other brands that were among my favourite were:
The highlights didn’t stop there: Guests could even purchase Estée Lauder makeup right at the venue. Everybody was all shopped-out by the end of the day thanks to all the stores and fun.
I’m hoping that StyleSociety doesn’t stop bringing back the successful popup boutiques held each year!
