#EDITORS_CHOICE: Craig Port for UCT Rag Benefit Fashion Show

I’m not ready to be a philanthropist, as such. I don’t earn millions and I’m not from a wealthy family that owns enough estates to afford such a lifestyle, however, I thoroughly enjoy the work being done by UCT Rag for SHAWCO. More so because in recent years they’ve exposed me to charitable events that fit my lifestyle, so participation does not feel forced and I can then be a philanthropist vicariously through others and their means.

This time around, UCT Rag hosted a benefit fashion show on the famous Jameson Hall stairs. Craig Port was one of three featured brands on the night, along with Gavin Rajah and Legit. Set against the glimmering lights of the city, the show presented well thought-through collections by the designers and brand and gave Craig Port the opportunity to highlight trends within his menswear labels Lucky Luke and Scorpio.

SHAWCO, the beneficiary of the evening, is one of South Africa’s largest student volunteer organisations, which run health, welfare and educational projects in under-resourced communities in Cape Town and surrounding areas.

Here’s to another successful ‘fashion’ event in aid of a good cause. Till the next!
