The next project for Couture Concept’s is Design for Style (DFS). The Design for Style (DFS) platform was conceptualised by Lavish Industries and Couture Concepts to showcase designers from a variety of backgrounds with a vision to break into the fashion industry.

Those present will range from established fashion houses to up-and-coming designers who will have the opportunity to invite buyers and media, and the general public to view their design. Fashion shows will take place in various hot-spots all over Cape Town, fortnightly from 28th April 2010. All the fashion shows will be creatively produced to accommodate each designer’s unique vision while adapting according to each distinctive venue.

This project is exciting for CC, because we are able to mould it into our own vision. Unfortunately, only a limited number of tickets will be made available to the public but CC will keep you updated on the details regarding every show.

 The RAG Show at Ftv was a success. Couture Concepts would like to thank all 15 designers, the models, performers, sponsors and UCT RAG for their involvement. The show had 700 spectators and the feedback has been phenomenal. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Only 4 days to go and the UCT RAG Fashion Show is well on its way. It’s been quite a journey selecting the models, the photographers and the designers for the design competition. Tonight, the winners for the Dance-Off Competition will be announced at the Baxter Theatre. The winners will feature at Saturday’s Fashion Extravaganza on 10 April, hosted at the FTV Lounge.

Under the theme ‘All Kinds of Chic’, the RAG team has chosen an appropriate list of designers. Confirmed participants include Non European, Janie B, Ragnarok, Stoned Cherrie’s Love movement, Butan Wear, Soulchild, Baie Nice, Iskapie and Lipsy. Without giving too much away, there will also be an array of performances, and the show will be hosted by Goodhope FM’s Ayanda Tini.                                                                   
Tickets cost R90(non VIP) and are available at UCT’s RAG Office on Upper Campus. A bit of caution – the show sells out every year, and no tickets will be sold on the day, so make sure you get yours before you’re out of fashion!
