Last night was the prize giving and design installation for both Avant Garde dress and Avant Garde object, sponsored by Pick n Pay and The Body Shop in partnership with vida e caffè and The Cape Town Fashion Council; hosted by Live Eco and vida e caffè at vida’s Wembley Square store.

We had a full house and must say thanks to Boodles Gin SA who spoilt the crowd with delicious {proper british gin} G&T’s. After browsing the upcycled designs on display the winners were announced.
