@Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs to showcase @_FranklyWild #PowerHalfHour

We were very privileged to be introduced to the Fashion entrepreneur, trends guru and media personality Craig Jacobs just a few weeks ago, when the organiser of The East Rand Wedding Show turned to us and said – “do you think you can fit him in?”.  Fit him in…fall over ourselves to fit him in is more like the expression we have in mind.  Have a look at the Shoot….


I had better paint a picture for you before we all get lost in this Blog.  We are producing the Fashion Show at the inaugural Wedding showcase to be held at Emperors Palace this winter – 12/13 July 2014 to be precise.  The event promises to set a new bench mark in the industry as it is the first event of its kind to be held in the East Rand of Johannesburg, but in particular because it is hosting the first ever #PowerHalfHour Fashion Show, an idea conceptualised by FranklyWild.  If you’re wondering what it is, and how it all works, you’d better make sure you book yourself a ticket.  We will tell you though that it is going to be the ‘FashionWeek’ of Wedding Shows!


So Who is Craig Jacobs and what does he do?

This is the part where everyone always takes three long paragraphs to tell us what we already know, so we’re not going to do that.  Let’s keep it simple, and let’s keep it real.  Craig popped into our Studio for a Photo Shoot on Thursday.


Let’s tell you in one sentence about the man – he is uncomplicated, really easy to chat too, and can’t do enough for you.  If you want to know more about Craig, and what he does, and what Fundudzi is, then pop past the East Rand Wedding Show at Emperors Palace in a couple of weeks and we’ll show you during our #PowerHalfHourFashionShow…!  You may even get to chat to him at the Fashion Installation.


Before I sign off on this Blog, we’re really excited to be hosting Craig as one of the designers during our Maiden PowerHalfHour shows, and even though we didn’t know we’d have Craig at the time we conceptualised it, this is exactly why we came up with the idea!

The Man is amazing, the shoot was spectacular – enjoy the images…!  Thanks Craig…
