Craig Jacobs Hosts Designer Trunk Show | Media Release


















































A glittering new trunk show gives you the chance to dress from head to toe in the chicest local and international designer labels

From Alexander McQueen heels to the Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs Medusa gown worn by Zahara, the ultra feminine silhouettes of Rubicon and chic elegance of Gugulam to coveted international red carpet brands like Nicole Ritchie’s House of Harlow, Italian label lp&Mr Famous and the stylish eco shoe label Melissa Shoes now you can stand out from the crowd with the arrival of The Cocktail Season.

Arriving just in time for the party season, The Cocktail Season features a carefully curated bouquet of local and international brands presenting their ultra-stylish pieces directly to the public for two days only.

In partnership with True Love magazine, it takes place from Friday October 26th until Saturday October 27th at Studio Space (First floor, Regents Place, The Zone, Rosebank).

Fashionable shoppers will be able to snap up the ultimate cocktail dresses in an intimate setting and a chance to meet their favourite local designers and the True Love editor Lerato Tshabalala -  and even pick up a style tip or two from the magazine’s ultra-stylish fashion editor Palesa Mahlaba.

Each of the labels were carefully selected because they reflect exquisite style and craftsmanship without being extravagant and appeal to the fashionable shopper seeking investment pieces which make a lasting statement.
