The Pink Polo
One of the perks about being in Cape Town during summer is attending some of the most prestigious events. These past two weeks have been pretty manic, from preparing the launch party to the next 2016 catalogue shoot, however I can’t deny it has been overwhelmingly fun! This past weekend I had the honor of attending The Pink Polo at Val De Vie wine estate with some of South Africa’s finest.
The event is an annual fundraiser sponsored by Cintron in aid of breast cancer programmes and research such as The Reach for Recovery and their DITTO Project. The cause for this anticipated event is purely to support women survivors of cancer. Listening to their recovery stories and witnessing their strength to overcome these intensely daunting situations is so inspirational. These women are super women to battle through such life threatening circumstances, fight it head on and still come out on top!If you or anyone You know Is a cancer survivor I’m sure you can relate to the overwhelming feeling of hoplessness & fear of the unknown.
For me, being apart of something with such a good cause in support of such brave women is an eye opener of how we should cherish life, look after ourselves & show our support to others suffering through the deadly fight to defeat the disease. The day was truly heart moving and humbling.
It felt so good to finally be back in Cape Town surrounded by beautiful people I have not seen in ages. We enjoyed ourselves in sipping away on bubbly from the VIP lounge where we had a clear view of the track and engaging in deep intellectual conversations whilst watching the riveting polo. Later that afternoon we got to watch a live fashion show and indulge in some delicious snacks on the lawns of South Africa’s most beautiful and only wine & polo Estate with the magnificent mountains as our backdrop.
Cape Town is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world, despite being a swallow I’m proud to call it home.
Below are some of breathe taking pictures captured by the team in case you missed the event.
