BOKEH FASHION FILM FESTIVAL 2017 – AWARDS EVENING

HELLO BLOGGETTES!!

It has been awhile since my last post but things have been so busy on the work front – specifically related to my BIG NEWS…I have been selected for the 2017 Mandela Washington Fellowship and so I will be jetting off to the USA in less than two months (for more on this news visit my personal website silindilenbuthelezi.com ). God has been really good to me and I am in awe at His favour and mercy. So thankful for all He has done. Stay following my blog as I will be keeping you updated on all my American adventures.

BOKEH FASHION FILM FESTIVAL

But…back to my more recent adventures right here in Cape Town, South Africa. The Bokeh Fashion Film Festival 2017 was upon us a few weeks ago and I had the blessed opportunity to attend one of the Awards Evenings.

The Mercedes-Benz Bokeh Fashion Film Festival is a South African International Fashion Film Festival which brings together creatives in the Film, Fashion, Artistic and related technical industries in order to celebrate their craft. The Fashion Film Festival delivers a world-class platform where local and international fashion filmmakers, designers and makeup artists are recognized in an evening filled with glitz and glamour.

Well…with the nominations having been announced (see my previous blog post on the various category nominees HERE ) the fashion and film community were waiting with baited breath to see who would walk away with the coveted prizes. On Saturday, 8 April, I put on my Cinderella shoes and prepared myself to walk the red carpet at the Awards Evening. Held at the AMG Showroom Mercedes Benz in Century City in Cape Town, the event was stylish and sophisticated – very befitting considering the brand image of its main sponsor. The evening was filled with A-list celebrities, industry VIPs, producers, designers, fashion models, and of course Cape Town’s high society who attended to celebrate the local and international fashion film industry. It was definitely a night to remember.

This year the awards evenings were spread over two days. The first eight category awards were hosted on Friday evening, 7 April, with the remaining eight category awards held on the Saturday evening, 8 April – with a glittering after party closing one of the best events on Cape Town’s social calendar.
