Suzaan Heyns, Fashion’s Big Night Out @ VIP Room in Sandton
Absolut Vodka sponsors Fashion’s Big Night Out, held at the VIP Room in the Michaelangelo Towers in Sandton on a weekly basis. There were a few designers present, each with a few models, who were situated on platforms at the entrance and throughout the club. I was there to photograph Suzaan Heyns’ collection, who chose to finish off her exquisite outfits with the unusual jewellery by Sobeit Studios.
