4th Street is running a STUNNING competition called #My4thStreetParty where they’re giving away 4 parties to the value of R200 000 EACH. The best part? You get to throw any party your heart desires. A trip overseas? A banging house party? A stay in a swag hotel with your besties for a weekend? If you can dream it up, they can help you make it happen.
If it were me, I would definitely be going to Paris Fashion Week with the other half of The Duo Desk / bestie (Palesa)
4th Street wanted to give Palesa and myself a taste of #My4thStreetParty – so exactly 4 weeks ago we attended Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Cape Town with them. 4th Street knew that MBFW would be the perfect party for Palesa and I, and we honestly could not have picked a better party experience than this.
So, here’s the full inside scoop on our amazing Fashion Week party, as well as details on the most fabulous competition of the year!We arrived at Cape Town International Airport at 12:15 pm on a Friday afternoon #DuoDeskStyle.The weather was absolutely beautiful in Cape Town, which was apparently not the case a few days prior. It was like the Mother City knew The Duo Desk was in town, so she decided to show off. We were picked up and transported to our hotel in a lovely über cab. We arrived at the hotel at 12:30pm, and were welcomed by the friendliest staff of The Table Bay Hotel. This was to be our home for the weekend. We were both shown to our rooms where awaiting us were some awesome goodies from 4th Street. These included, a V&A Waterfront voucher, Zara Voucher, 4th Street selfie stick and some delicious 4th Street beverages, just to name a few. We literally had a few minutes to soak it all in, then it was time to head out again.We arrived at the Pichulik Studio at 2pm, where we were welcomed by the owner Katherine-Mary Pichulik. We had the opportunity to pick out a few pieces, which Katherine-Mary guided us through.Katherine-Mary gave us such a memorable, and undoubtedly special personalised shopping experience. She shared the origin of every piece as well as the unique meaning behind them, which definitely lead to some goosebump inducing moments. Pichulik is a bespoke range of wild neckpieces handcrafted in Cape Town using locally manufactured ropes and interesting found materials. Inspired by African and Middle Eastern Ornamentation, Pichulik creates statement pieces for bold and courageous women. Also, keep a look out for something fun The Duo Desk will be doing to highlight the amazing pieces we picked up at PICHULIK.For more on PICHULIK and how you can shop their range, check out their website here.After our incredible shopping experience at Pichulik, it was time to head back to our hotel, where a makeup artist from MAC Cosmetics was waiting to do our makeup. Rushana Isaacs (MAC Makeup Artist) was inspired by the geometric pattern on our ensembles. She then recreated an inspired graphic on our eyes to perfectly mirror the pattern. It was finally time for us to head out to attend Day 2 of MBFWCT. Palesa and I wore Oath by Rich Mnisi. Mama we made it! Look at us sitting front row!Ruald Rheeder ShowDax Martin ShowCraig Native ShowWe got to meet and hangout with some amazing fashion peeps.Twins!!And, that’s how we rounded up our first night in Cape Town and Day 2 of MBFWCT.
