Last night, the annual Bokeh Fashion Film Festival took place and it was one for the books. The theme was ‘champagne elegance’, which forced me to step out of my all black wardrobe and don something a little more glitzy and I absolutely loved it. Kirsten Goss is one of the top jewellery designers in South Africa, and was kind enough to lend me a gorgeous pair of earrings and ring for the occasion – Thank you Kirsten!
The event kicked off with an abundance of photographers capturing all VIP guests who stepped foot onto the red carpet, followed by a handout of custom-made poker chips and red tennis balls that were exchanged for glasses of champagne as you entered the room. The canapés were exquisite and I definitely had one too many mouthfuls of dessert!
This year ‘Club Bokeh’ was introduced: a premium membership platform for individuals and corporates, aimed at offering the perfect networking opportunities for collaboration and creativity.
This year also sees the introduction of exciting new presenting partner, Piper-Heidsieck champagne. Piper-Heidsick is the most awarded champagne of the century and the 7th largest in the world and is so excited to be partnering up with the Bokeh SA Lifestyle and Fashion Film Festival. The brand has always had a love affair with fashion and film, and globally sponsors the Cannes Film Festival as well as the Oscars. It is also proud of its partnerships with Jean Paul Gaultier, Viktor and Rolf and Christian Louboutin.
Mercedes-Benz is also a proud sponsor of the glamorous event. Their partnership has evolved over the past six years and continues to deliver a world class platform.
Club Bokeh is South Africa’s top platform for creatives who enjoy collaborating while experiencing the best in fashion, film, gastronomy, music and technology. Membership to Club Bokeh offers creatives and individuals alike the platform to network with like-minded people.
I am so excited to be a member of Club Bokeh as they will be hosting an incredible lineup of events throughout 2020. The upcoming events will include master classes and talks from industry professionals as well as a priority rate to attend the main red-carpet Gala Event.
Thank you so much Club Bokeh, I cannot wait for what’s to come! X
