The Table Bay Hotel treated us to High Tea last week to get us even more excited about the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town (MBFWCT) that is set to take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from Thursday to Saturday (August 8 to 10).

About 30 South African designers, a mixture of households names and up-and-coming designers, will showcase their Spring/Summer 2013 collections.  I can’t wait to see what some of my fashion favourites such as David Tlale, Habits, Lalesso, Thula Sindi, Fabiani, Craig Port and Adriaan Kuiters have lined up. Will also be keeping a close eye on emerging designer and  Mr Price & Elle New Talent Award winners Anisa Malembo Mpungwe (Loin Cloth & Ashes).

Back to the High Tea, The Table Bay Hotel  Pastry Chef Bhupender “Bobby” Kumar worked with designers, Stefania and Shana Morland, who will be showcasing at MFFWCT, to bring us a selection of delectable desserts such as.red macaroons with rose ganache and chocolate ruffles, a gorgeous pink marshmallow hat and orange print chocolate éclairs.

Stefania did not give away much about her collection but she did hint that “This year orange is the new black.” I love colour and can’t wait to see what she has in store.
