#PRESS_RELEASE: The Year Of Design – Craig Port shines a spotlight on ‘all things design’ in 2014

The city is buzzing with creativity as Cape Town celebrates its prestigious World Design Capital title and in celebration acclaimed designer Craig Port has labeled 2014 ‘The Year Of Design’.  With plans to team up with likeminded creatives from across a multitude of design platforms Port looks forward to exploring an array of contrasting projects and engaging collaborations that showcase the best of local talent.

Port ignites ‘The Year of Design’ with an explosive fashion editorial shot by Cape Town’s hottest photographer duo KOPE | FIGGINS. “I am a huge fan of KOPE | FIGGINS fresh approach to photography. Their images are unexpectedly beautiful and effortlessly edgy and I was really excited to see their interpretation of my work. Jarred and Jonathan’s style really compliments my design aesthetic which is fundamental to the success of any creative collaboration,” explains Port.

The shoot was conceptualised by Jonathan Kope and Jarred Figgins and styled by fashion editor and freelance stylist Bee Diamondhead. "This was an opportunity to have complete free reign to pick through the PORT archive, and do with it what we pleased. Speedos, oil, great models, minimal styling and a slightly off kilter location all combined into something quite sexy,” says the duo.

The images are a true celebration of the edgy yet polished work coming out of South Africa and selected images were featured as an editorial exclusive on international online magazine Fucking Young!
