It’s a week since we had a press launch of the Paradise is Here collection at SAM in Cape Town (followed by two Trade launches at Wolfe St Fabrics in Chelsea, and at The Silk & Cotton Co in Kramerville. Whew!), and I’m feeling so happy and grateful for all the support and encouragement we’ve seen over the past week. It’s time to say some Thank Yous!
Firstly, Thanks so much to everyone who braved the elements to attend the press launch last week. It was a miserable, icy wet evening, and we were so thrilled and touched by the turnout. Thank you, thank you!
Then, to the Skinny laMinx team – Pearl, Sarah, Astrid, Maleeka, Melissa and Belinda, you guys are superstars, and I love working with all of you. xox
Our PR team – Lee-Ann, Carey, and Megan (below) were essential to making our press launch such a success. The venue was perfect (SAM at 107 Bree Street), the vegan nibbles from Plant Cafe were yummy, and the wine from Babylonstoren was simple sublime! Thanks to Lar Leslie for these event pics too.
Silk and Cotton and Wolfe Street Fabrics gave the collection a great send-off too, at their respective showrooms. Thanks to Sally, Sam, Candice, Jane, and everyone else who made it happen, as well as to everyone who attended. Hope to be sending off lots of fabric orders to you soon!
And a massive thanks, too, for the amazing press we recieved almost the minute we’d launched. We really have been spoiled rotten! Links below:

Apologies if I’ve left anyone out in this extravaganza of appreciation. Thank you in advance or in arrears. All the help, kind words, publicity and support is much, much appreciated. xox
