Save the Tie, Save a Child Fashion Show: Hein Smit


Hein Smit, one of our talented designers was part of the Save the Tie, Save a Child Fashion Show. His dresses made heads turn and one of the dresses was sold after the second show…. Months of work went into the design and making of these dresses. Many late nights and hundred’s of ties went into these master pieces.

Save the Tie, Save a Child Fashion Show: Junior Models

Mrs Cape Town 2013 Chantal Witthuhn hosted the  Save the Tie, Save a Child Fashion show on 27/28 June 2014.  She had the idea of making outfits out of old and unused ties. When she asked me if I would be part of the team I just could not say no. What an experience it was and I have grown allot in the process. I helped collect ties, took photo’s at the meetings and had the honor to meet so many new people. The best of all was to see old ties transformed into gorgeous outfits and evening gowns….

The Junior Models and their Mothers  had approximately one week to design a dress out of the old and unused ties collected.  They did not disappoint at all and I must say I was super impressed once again.

Stagecoach Somerset West featuring on website.

WOW I can’t believe that 5 months has gone by. Yes time do fly when you are busy. Well as they say never late than never.

Stagecoach Somerset West was one of the performing acts at the Save the Tie, Save a Child Fashion show. I enjoyed their performance allot and I was very impressed with the talents I saw. These kids and their coaches rock….

Here are just some background information I got from their website.

“If your child is creative and you have been looking at the various dance schools, drama classes and singing lessons available in the area, Stagecoach Somerset West is the answer. Stagecoach is more than just a stage school, theatre school or drama school: it is a full and rounded education, teaching life skills that build confidence and stretch imaginations. Every child needs an outlet for their natural creativity, and at Stagecoach, we nurture their sparks of inspiration and watch them grow over time into talents and confidence.  It may be that your child simply needs an opportunity to develop their self-esteem in a safe and nurturing environment, away from competitive social challenges. If you are looking for dance classes, singing lessons or acting classes for your child, Stagecoach Somerset West has it all … and all under one roof.”  Principal Melanie Williss.
