When you first think of cement, fashion is not the immediate thing that you think of. Buildings? Yes. But refined and delicate pieces of clothing by much loved and respected local designer? Definitely not. That was my initial view before I attended the Suzaan Heyns store relaunch last week.
My favourite British Designer and my favourite local retailer, have done it once again! I love this collection of dresses designed by super cool Henry Holland and sold exclusively through Mr Price. The dresses are inspired by Henry's famous friends - Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Geldof, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, Alexa Chung, Agyness Deyn and Poppy Delevingne.
Not only will you look good when you wear one of these rokkies but you'll also feel good as for every dress sold, ten rand will be donated to the RedCap Foundation Schools Project. Through structured education programmes, the Foundation helps to nurture young learners in all aspects of school life from literacy and numeracy to arts and sport. I love it when beautiful clothes contribute and make a difference.
My favourite dresses are the Katy dress worn by Kelly Osbourne and Iggy dress worn by Pixie Geldof above. How gorgeous does Kelly Osbourne look in this campaign? I've always loved Kelly Osbourne for her ballsy nature and in the video above she looks like she's the kind of girl you'd like to be friends with.
You can shop these dresses online from mrp.com now in stores from 2 December 2013.
