SQUAR­ING UP FOR fashion

This is the sea­son for store open­ings.

As the malls around Joburg com­plete their long-run­ning re­vamps, their trendy stores of­fer end­less op­por­tu­ni­ties for a party af­ter the rib­bon-cut­tings.

Thurs­day night be­longed to CS-quared at the new-look Rose­bank Mall.

The city’s fash­ion­able men and women stepped out to savour the finest the la­bel has to of­fer – and pick up a few spe­cial items and ac­ces­sories – as well as en­joy the com­pany, free drinks and good mu­sic. Sadly, the food looked like a Pick n Pay plat­ter so I kept away.

But the night was graced with the pres­ence of the don of style, Stoan Seate, who was kit­ted out in CS-quared’s lat­est. I loved the trendy grey and black tar­tan jacket and was thank­ful he left his fa­mous blue suede shoes at home, opt­ing in­stead for red leather.

One of my favourite suit mak­ers, Zano Si­thetho of Sko­rzch fame, made a rare ap­pear­ance on the party scene.

The Link pre­sen­ter Ler­ato Kganyago, in a beau­ti­ful bloom­ing flower dress, led a bri­gade of women who came to “spy” on the men.

Also there were ac­tresses Lolo Mphephi who plays the sassy do­mes­tic Pam on Isibaya, Omuhle Gela from Muvhango and model Andiswa Manxiwa.

Comedian Marc Lot­ter­ing put in an ap­pear­ance, too, as well as In­ter­sex­ions ac­tor young Phila Madlin­gozi.

The evergreen ra­dio man Bob Mabena of Kaya FM stopped over for a drink or two, but it’s the foun­tain of youth that man drinks from I won­dered about. In his mid 40s, he could pass for a twen­tysome­thing.

Guests were treated to a fashion show to dis­play what’s in store and to fore­cast fu­ture trends.

The place was crowded and the DJ kept us go­ing with his se­lec­tion of dance tunes. A good night out.
