Top. Amber Jones of Mr Price. She made that necklace. She is awesome. Michael Owen who is the new addition to Christopher Strong speaking to Amy Rawhani of Lost and Found. Kirsty Stoltz' shoes and Bongi from Busby and I sharing some sole stud love!

Yesterday, a group of us got together to drastically change someone's life. This year's Elle New Talent Competition final judging session was yesterday and it was a close but unanimous decision. All will be revealed tonight as Joburg gets set to kick off SA Fashion Week's 2011 AW Collections at Arts on Main. The judging panel included myself, convener Dion Chang, Amber Jones and Joanne Coehlo of Mr Price, Chris Viljoen and Kirsty Stoltz from Elle and previous ENT winner Tiaan Nagel. The standard of entries was high so to those who didn't win - you guys definitely have careers in this industry. Ask Jennifer Hudson, Adam Lambert and Zamajobe how to handle Second Princess status! The prize is R25 000 (I know how it feels to win that :-), a trip to London with the Mr Price team, an internship at Mr Price and the winning designer will design a range that's going to be stocked at Mr Price. Have you ever?

After the judging process, Elle hosted a cocktail party at the Main Street Life entrance. I thought it was nice and the macaroon's were damn delicious, though I wish they would have fed us more real food. The usual style suspects were all out so these pics are all about them. x
