We had our first official team meeting for the Fashion, Flavour & Art Showcase today. Although being filmed during a business meeting isn’t my ideal way of talking shop, the energy in the room was unavoidable – so much excitement amongst so much selfless talent!
It was an absolute honour getting to rub shoulders and chat with all the incredible people involved over some delicious home-made muffins and hazelnut coffees. Artists, scuptors, jewellers, furniture designers, fashion designers, event organisers, food contributors, social media guru’s, Mrs. SA Finalist Anna Donkin and of course the film crew in the background ignited some serious magic and allowed for the aligning of some exciting energies.
The passion and dedication to the cause was palpable, confirming the calibre and presentation of the FF&A event to be nothing short of incredible! There is even an incredible World Design Captial Project involved (#WDC411) called Connections that Unite, and we all got to make our mark and squeeze a clay mug that will be fired and varnished, with our finger prints and hand indentation visible, name alongside. What a beautiful concept: the unity of holding something together and sharing a connection!
Tickets for the Fashion, Flavours & Art CANSA Showcase Event are R350, of which every cent goes directly to the CANSA Fund, and go on sale on Monday through Quicket. After this first taste of what to expect for the 26th July, I have no doubt they are going to sell out instantly with the limited number available!
