Cape Town is certainly an urban hotspot for creativity and craftsmanship. It’s no wonder that this year the mother city is painted in yellow to wear the crown as the official Design Capital of 2014. To show our support we wanted to devote our monthly editorial shoot to the creative talent of our local designers and artists.

Of course, given the colour scheme of black, white and yellow, we couldn’t think of a better location than the legendary Superette situated in the Woodstock Exchange Building. Against this quirky and artistic backdrop we teamed up with the Capetonian Kamini Pather, winner of Masterchef SA. She willingly got dolled up with a splash of yellow in the gorgeous garments of Habits and Klûk CGDT, as we played around with some original creations of our favourite local designers which we’ve listed below.

Matthew & Brittney’s Blissful Summer Soiree

Today’s wedding is a picture perfect summer’s tale of Brittney and Matthew who met while travelling the world on a cruise ship in 2012. Not long after they first set eyes on one another, it was clear that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. Brittney, being based in Canada, could not wait to set foot on South-African soil so that she could walk down the aisle and into the arms of her future husband, Matthew. Being surrounded by the scenic beauty and majestically mountains, the couple said their “I do’s” and celebrated this significant day with 95 guests at La Petit Dauphine in Franschhoek. Thanks to Hayley takes photos, we can share a glimpse in the memory of that special day.
