Cruz Vodka’s brand manager, Kayla Hendricks, said in a statement: “As a brand that prides itself on being at the forefront of fashion for many years, our mutual interest in strengthening and sustaining our vibrant local design culture makes this partnership with SA Fashion Week an important and highly valued one.

“Having had a long-standing relationship with the SAFW team, it is with great honour that we have, once again, joined forces to deliver sophistication, glitz and glamour at the Annual Cruz Vintage Black Opening Party. Here’s to yet another iconic celebration of talent in our incredible local fashion industry.”
