I’m so excited to be writing this post right now. I’ve been meaning to share this for ages, but have been waiting to get the shoot shot and edited, to be able to share some prettiness along with the rest of the information.
I was asked to participate in this upcoming event and when I heard that the non-profit organisation, Fashion Flavour & Art was Mrs South Africa Finalist, Anna Donkin’s, concept and that 100% of the proceeds generated from the event would be donated to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) I knew that I wanted to be involved and do my part for this worthy cause.
The event on 8th August 2015 is going to be held at the glamorous Shimmy Beach Club at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town. The event aims to celebrate the stories that make up our individual experiences of life. #TellYourStory
Guests will experience true elegance, rich flavours, inspiring creativity and everything that makes up the finer things in life.
From canapes and drinks, to wine & coffee tastings, to fashion shows & art exhibitions, performances & prizes and even a 1920’s portrait studio by yours truly.
There’s going to be celebrities, media, models and all the people you would expect to see at such a glamorous event, but more importantly, there will be the stories of survival and triumph over Cancer. This an event to celebrate those stories, to share hope and to enjoy the life we have.
There are so many amazing sponsors who are donating their time, products and services to make this event come to life.
Some of us shot a video ahead of the event to encourage people to tell their stories of courage, survival and overcoming cancer.

1920’s Inspired Glits & Glam Shoot with Anna Donkin
