IMG_3230Melrose Arch – Johannesburg

As you can remember from my earlier post (here) where I announced that The Duo Desk would be giving a trend talk together with Sunglass Hut SA on the Punk Avant-garde trend. Well, we did just that. On the 18th and 21st of September we hosted our very first trend talks at SunglassHut Melrose Arch – JHB, and V&A Waterfront – CPT. And, boy was it an event to remember. 

V&A Waterfront – Cape Town
WXW_6870Both venues were packed with amazing fashion peeps, ready and eager to hear all about the Punk Avant-garde trend, and how they can incorporate it into their everyday wardrobes. IMG_3231 2IMG_3399From studs, matte black and sparkly sunglasses, to leather jackets and tutus, embellished heels, and black lipstick – we covered it all. IMG_3199IMG_3359IMG_3354We really wanted to highlight the different ways you could incorporate the trend into your wardrobe. We wanted to show that you don’t have to completely commit to the trend, but find subtle ways to rock the trend. This can be achieved with either a punk inspired, hairstyle, accessory, clothing item or makeup look. IMG_3415The best way this can be done is  with a great pair of sunglasses. With the right pair of sunglasses  you can instantly Punk Up any look. Just have a look at our amazing Fashionistas of JHB and CPT, and how they Punk’d Up their looks with SunglassHut sunnies. IMG_3413IMG_3370IMG_3340IMG_3407IMG_3232 2imageWXW_6723WXW_7065Palesa and I had the most amazing time meeting, hanging with and sharing our love for all things fashion with fellow fashionistas. We’re truly  grateful and thankful to everyone who came out to support us, as well as SunglassHut for giving us the opportunity to be apart of such an amazing experience. It was literally written all over our faces – see below. IMG_3402IMG_3380IMG_3390IMG_3246IMG_3227IMG_3208IMG_3403WXW_7060IMG_3306Look 1 (JHB):
