Anneliese Le-Breton – Owner
The DSTV Fashion Arena at this year’s Design Indaba will showcase twenty designers under the auspices of the Cape Town Fashion Council who have carefully curated the 2013 line-up of participating designers.
Design Indaba has become synonymous with providing a highly respected platform for both established and emerging designers to show a capsule collection within an innovative and creative space that transposes the typical fashion runway into an exciting fashion adventure.
Within this edgy space, designers have the opportunity to show their work to the public as well as gain exposure to local and international buyers and to build a trade relationship with these buyers.
The fashion showings are produced and directed by Anneliese Le-Breton of Sirius Productions SA who has been closely linked to the Design Indaba for numerous years.
It has always been the challenge of the production teams to bring a fresh offering to the event each year. To this end Anneliese has worked with creative direction from Alwijn Burger and the technical expertise of Wayne Krull of Phoenix5 Productions and this year’s exciting venue layout is a testament to this process.
Each day of the expo, Anneliese and her very efficient backstage team produce 6-7 shows within a 5 hour period and their challenge comes in putting everything together in the very tight turn around times between shows, but in the end what the public sees is a very slick production – no one is aware of the frantic hair and make-up changeovers by the teams from MAC and Scar Hair or the very quick changes into the next designers collection by the gorgeous models who have been cast both locally and internationally!!
So when asked ‘what’s new this year and who is fresh?’ Anneliese responded – ‘you will just have to come along to see for yourself – we don’t want to spoil the surprise’.
