Top African Luxury Menswear Fashion House XIPIXI launches THE Glenlivet Original Series with spectacular Fashion Event


The Mustang Room in Kramerville, one of Johannesburg’s leading design and business precincts, was the backdrop for the launch of THE Glenlivet Original Series on Friday evening (24 November) where leading African Luxury Menswear Fashion House XIPIXI presented what must be THE original fashion event of the year.

Invited guests were part of a truly original experience – a spectacular fashion event that transcended the world’s of whisky, jazz, fashion and live poetry to create something entirely authentic. Captivating guests with an ethereal live poetry reading was poet Marina Chichava, who set the tone for this soul-stirring slice of fashion-centred performance theatre, created around the Spring-Summer Collection of Founder and Creative Director for XIPIXI, António Macheve Jr, entitled The Original Gentleman.

The Collection, designed in collaboration with THE Glenlivet, was showcased by models walking a highly original catwalk looped through the space, and framed by an unconventional stage. MC for the evening, renowned local actress, model and television presenter Sinazo Yolwa, added a sophisticated glow to the evening, beautifully narrating the experience every step of the way.

Among Joburg’s trendsetting social set who attended were actors Loysio MacDonald, Makgotso Monyemokathe and Michelle Mosalakae.
