J&B Met Styling by LUXO

J&B Met Styling by LUXO

03 February 2013

The J&B Met is an event most fashionistas anticipate for a whole year with lots of glamorous fashion, celebrities, socialites and locals dressing up in their most extravagant fashion ensembles.

LUXO editor, Elrico Bellingan styled two beautiful ladies for this prestiges event, his girlfriend, Ritza van Rensburg as well as radio and television personality, Liezel van der Westhuizen.

I focused on using young designers to show South Africa what talent there is out there and what fashion we could look forward to seeing in the future from them. As you all know, the theme for the J&B Met this year was "Made To Fly" and I was looking for interesting designs with a story incorporating the theme.

Raeesa Brey, first year student at FEDISA, is the amazing designer of Ritza's Made To Fly outfit. I decided on a "swan-like" feather look for her with soft elegant lace and ombre'd ostrich feathers that swayed in the wind. To make it more dramatic, Marios Hair created an avant garde hairstyle.

The beautiful Liezel van der Westhuizen drew a lot of attention in a dress by Jade Simkins. What I had in mind for her with this outfit is a "cloud 9" with a silver lining and every woman is Made To Fly in clouds full of diamonds. Liezel wore a hat by Black Cake to complete the look.

Thanks to the young and talented designers for helping me created these beautiful looks of these two ladies.
