In the City of Gold (Mind the pun) I attended a much anticipated event held by 4Elements Media, on Thursday the 26th of June at Elevate nightclub in Johannesburg... The countdown to this event on social media was completely insane, and left me with high expectations.
Did it meet my expectations? Ofcourse yes! The venue alone set a "HIGH" standard! I was so thrilled at the fashion statements that some people actually had the guts to pull off. Being a fashion blogger, I try not to limit myself into my interpretation of what I think fashion is. So, I went in with an open mind. It got me thinking quite a bit. I was really impressed at how 'being yourself' (in all sense of that phrase) is accepted in todays generation. I am a jeans and heels kinda girl, but pulling of some leather tights, patent boots, a beanie and a biker jacket actually felt good for once! And I didn't feel over or under dressed whatsoever!
That's why I am so excited these two brands are collaborating. Augustine can be seen on many South African catwalks including Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Gold Street Society has been the underground Kings in the fashion industry, and have definitely shown us things we've never seen before. Joining these two amazing brands proves that you can dress street style and still make a massive statement!
As always I love meeting new people, and this got me the opportunity to get to know a few familiar faces better. They had only good things to say about the event and that it never disappoints. I couldn't agree more. Vicky Crease Catering just put the golden cherry on the top! Its so hard to resist their delicious macaroons!
And, I did not leave empty handed... I was gifted an #AUGUSTINEGold beanie to add to my collection.
