#FashionFriday – Craig Port at the UCT Rag Fashion Benefit Show


On Saturday 29 March 2014, fashion designer Craig Port showed at the UCT Rag Fashion Benefit Show in aid of SHAWCO alongside longtime friend and couturier, Gavin Rajah, and fashion retailer, Legit.

UCT Rag is the University of Cape Town’s student society and members endeavor to raise funds for SHAWCO through exciting youth orientated events. SHAWCO, one of South Africa’s largest student volunteer organisations, runs health, welfare and educational projects in under-resourced communities in Cape Town and surrounding areas.

Craig Port supports Cape Town’s most fashionable charity event and didn’t think twice about participating when approached by Rajah to show at the event. “Charity work has always been very close to my heart. Being able to support the SHAWCO organisation and aid communities in and around Cape Town is truly fantastic and my team and I were thrilled to take part,” say Port.

It was an unforgettable evening with guests treated to a fashion extravaganza like no other. The famous Jameson Stairs on the University of Cape Town’s Upper Campus provided a spectacular venue with the twinkling of city lights as the glittering backdrop. Beautiful models glided up and down the stairs, showcasing designer collections for the fashion-loving crowd. Port selected key high trend looks from menswear brands Lucky Luke and Scorpio and womenswear brand Amber and X&O to appeal to the student audience.

Lucky Luke, Scorpio, Amber and X&O are available from YDE stores nationwide.
