Cape Town - The Sun Met celebrated with Mumm has been hailed as "the richest horseracing
day in Africa" it is also the event that the “who’s who” of SA's social
hierarchy regard as one of the most dazzling affairs not to be missed within
their annual social calendar.
It's an event where SA's most opulent and
glamourous of all come together for a display of what can be termed the finest
of them all ...

Minnie Dlamini is extremely excited about being KLUK CGDTs muse -
"I'm super excited!!! We've wanted to work together for a while and this
is the perfect opportunity"
KLUK CGDT says - The theme "Decades of glamour" is as much
about the “now” as it is the past, it is an accumulative influence of fashion
from history with a contemporary silhouette. It is about making a statement,
about a sense of occasion and about appropriate dress for the event.
"We love Minnie, she is a strong empowered woman who is classy and
elegant and has dared to stand out and make her mark. It is this quality we
want to celebrate! KLUK CGDT is all about luxury and exclusivity and unique
design and this is why we associate ourselves with Minnie Dlamini."

Jeannie D - "For me it's all about high voltage sensual couture meets
elegance, refinement and beauty!! It's a celebration of art of savoir-faire".
"Jeannie is a sensual, glamorous woman who celebrates life to the
full. She is the perfect lady to have fun with at the races. Jeannie's dress
design will define just that, high voltage sensual couture meets elegance and
style, with a touch of fun for a great day at the races!"

creativity is intelligence having fun. In pure celebration of such fine
sentiment we can expect to see one of SA's truest upbeat hip hop stars Da Les

Our tips for race day courtesy of Fashion
Label KLUK CGDT:
· A Cocktail dress (knee
length) is most suited to this event. It is an outdoor day function, therefore
cool and sophisticated is the order of the day
· Do not come in fancy
dress, it may be fun but not necessarily stylish
· Use the decade that
inspires you as an INFLUENCE not a bible
· Dress for the occasion
with shoes which are appropriate and comfortable. A fashionable trend right now
are block heels and flatforms as opposed to wedges
· Hats are both useful
for the sun as well as making a statement
· A touch of red bringing
in the essence of Mumm will always make a daring statement
