Two young ladies are taking their love for fashion to greater heights on Tuesday 16 June when they climb Lion’s Head – in heels!

Closet Chat is an online fashion talk show and the founders, Loren Henderson from Bonteheuwel and Loren Loubser from Diep River, will be stepping out in style when they tackle the tough walk on Tuesday.

Loren Henderson explained that they started the online talk show to highlight and encourage individual style, trends and young designers and entrepreneurs.

“Through fashion, we aim to inspire, encourage and develop youth in Cape Town and surrounding areas,”she says.

Loren Loubser is excited about their project to celebrate Youth Day and wants youth to join them and their team on the day.

“We are looking for young people to join us on our quest because this campaign will focus on the youth of Cape Town and surrounding areas in an effort to encourage them to ‘step out’ of their situations, challenges and circumstances.

“There is also the opportunity for all in the city to support us by helping us to support the Put Foot Foundation by pledging money to assist them in their projects.

“The Put Foot Foundation is a volunteer based, proudly South African organisation that tackles the need of the daily plight and indignity of children with no shoes.

“What better way to do it than stepping up in style,” she laughs.

Loren Henderson added that they are also inviting companies to partner with them to show that their business takes pride in actively making change and promoting youth initiatives.

“Partnering on this event will bring positivity to both our brands and allow the youth of Cape Town to see the heart behind big business to support positive youth activities,” she said.

“We are looking for businesses to come on board as pledgers or to sponsor merchandise on the day of the walk. Individuals can also come on board as pledgers, and even join us on the walk on the day.”

Loren Loubser points out that they welcome all donations but encourage businesses to jump in and sponsor as little as R1 for every step they take in their heels.

“The rough estimate is that it takes 2 800 steps to the top, but we will welcome all donations to help this organisation that donates brand new school shoes to as many needy children as possible, allowing the youth to walk to school and feel proud with their new school shoes and ready to be empowered through education.”

Closet Chats will be filming the entire experience, which will be aired on their YouTube channel. The walk will start at 09:00 at the foot of Lion’s Head and the organisers encourage participants to take up the challenge of wearing fashion heels, but sneakers and hiking boots will also be welcomed.
