Party guests dream of the American dream

The theme was ‘American Vintage’ last weekend at My Kind Of Place when X- Models hosted a party , which many night crawlers marked as the beginning of the festive season. All guests were required to dress up in American Vintage couture as per the theme.

To complement the theme the venue was adorned with American flags and the on menu of that evening was a special cocktail known as the ‘American Sweetheart,’ a blend of bourbon, rum vermouth and sour mix. Leatile Motlhalamme of X Models explained that, “Our main agenda is to promote and grow the fashion and modeling industry by infusing it with a luxury lifestyle and celebrities.

During the party, guests had an opportunity to see fashion designers who dressed the X-Models in their exquisite and elegant American Vintage collection at some stage during the fashion hour. Designers were also given the opportunity to showcase their Haute Couture collections on the run-way.  American patriotic music such as Fifty Great United States Medley added to the feel of the fashion show.

The exclusive fashion hour gave local fashion designers a unique platform to showcase and market their collections. Motlhalamme further stated that, “The more people come to these fashion events the more they start appreciating and taking the modeling and fashion industry seriously leading to growth in the profession.” Nandi Gleeson won the best vintage outfit walked away with a hamper full of goodies. Motlhalamme said, “the fashion hour created an opportunity for people who love fashion, therefore the buying power to support local fashion designers.”

American Vintage Party attracted bloggers, photographers, makeup artists, fashionistas and socialites who went there for a night of their life. The DJ’s on the decks where D├®j├á vu, Tosh, Sway and Pit the DJ.
