#SAMW: Special Mentions & Thank You’s for SA Menswear Week

Now that the reviews are out of the way, perhaps now is the opportune moment to send a special shout out and thank you to certain parties. It’s best to start with the organising team behind SA Menswear Week; it’s been so long since we’ve been chanting the question ‘what about a menswear week’ and you have finally delivered. Teething issues are prevalent with any event and by far, for a first-time event by a first-time team – it was superb. Let’s make the next one exceptional. When is the next one, by the way?

To the team from Tsogo Sun’s SunSquare Cape Town hotel: Set in the heart of Cape Town, in the green and leafy City Bowl area off De Waal Drive, SunSquare CT was kind enough to host our Joburg Contributing Editor, Brian Lehang, for the days and nights of fashion week. Revamped as the city’s newest hotspot for fashion-lovers, the SunSquare CT Hotel boasts a range of features set to dazzle any star-studded event visitors come to in the city of Cape Town. As we all know, fashion travellers enjoy mingling, meeting, listening to great music – and the SunSquare CT Hotel offers all of that plus more.

“The weather in Cape Town during my stay was only rivalled by the hospitality received at SunSquare CT”, says RENASCENCE Magazine Contributing Editor, Brian Lehang. “ From the moment I arrived, the service was efficient and executed in a warm and friendly manner. My accommodation was lavishly spacious, the cuisine at the restaurant, Zepi, was delicious and let’s not talks about the fantastic drinks at the cosmopolitan bar. The experience was truly international, and I’m looking forward to staying there once more.”

Thank you once again, SunSquare Hotel for the hospitality. Just as Richard Keet, SunSquare CT General Manager once said, ‘you truly are set to deliver unique experiences for all’.

Special mention and Thank you goes out to, last but not least, Bombay Sapphire – the exquisite gin created using 10 precious botanicals through the Vapour Infusion process, for sponsoring some welcome drinks for Imprint ZA’s fashion week after party. Never has achievement tasted so good. The designer, Mzukisi Mbane, practically tasted his success in the glass of Bombay Sapphire G&Ts (Gin & Tonic – for those who don’t know…). Thank you for pulling through so very last minute with those couple of bottles. It’s incredibly appreciated. We salute you.

Until the next fashion week. Keep it trendy, stylish and unique.
