The Flamingo Casino was a hive of fashion activity when 22 models from Kimberley showed off their modelling talent and designer outfits.

The Northern Cape Fusion Weekend (NCFW) was held from 5 to 7 May at the Flamingo Casino.

This prestigious fashion and lifestyle event was hosted by Blueroom Marketing.

Models between the ages of four and 29 showed off fashion by designers Carmen Couture, Fort Joko, Hlamvu Afrocentric, Bokone-Bontle, Princess T’s, Nicky Madie, Party & More, Blom Floral Design and NZ Fils Collection.

The designers are from Kimberley, Klerksdorp and Johannesburg.

Nicholas Masinga was the master of ceremonies and Donne Hunt and Emelio Patron entertained the audience with their performances.

On Saturday, 6 May, workshops were hosted by Nicky Madie, Mpilo Sunglasses and Hlamvu Afrocentric.

Paul-John Saltwater was chosen as the Face of the NCFW 2017-’18.

Mandy de Klerk organiser of the NCFW said Saltwater will be the brand ambassador for the NCFW until the next face of the year is chosen.

The NCFW aims to offer a fashion experience to remember while showcasing diverse lifestyle items.

The main objective of this initiative is to promote the artistic and innovative work of industry leaders, offering them not only a platform to showcase their talents, but an opportunity to reach greater heights through maximum exposure, says De Klerk.

Fashion shows promote sales in the clothing industry and also provide a platform for designers to display their creativity and an equal opportunity for models to showcase their talent. The event, combining all elements of fashion, lifestyle, arts and culture, will be held annually.

De Klerk says the show will be used as a platform for promising and professional designers, as well as for buyers and sellers to meet and discuss potential business relationships.
