The evening started off with a massive queue lining up. There were hundreds of people eagerly looking at the entrance to open up. Eventually after some time (which felt like forever to the attendees) Cosmo started letting people in. From the moment you handed over your ticket, you were treated like a celebrity. 

Following the stamp on your arm and receiving of goodie bag, you proceeded to the Cosmo red carpet for a pic. The goodie bags were filled with plenty of exciting things – Cosmo Mag, Lots of vouchers, Mascara from “benefit”, Cutex from “wet n wild”, “Hoity Toity” perfume, “Caribbean-tan” lotion, Body mist from “Factorie”, “Guess” branded portable phone charger and many more.  The event area was filled with people within the first 20 minutes. There were waiters walking around handing out drinks; making you feel like royalty and the likes of well-known Mrs. World and Zoe Brown could be seen in the midst, also enjoying the glamour.   
Stands were visible all over promoting brands like Hoity Toity fragrances, Mac make up, drinks corner sponsored by Namaqua, Claires jewellery and more. The sweets corner was also an ultimate treat where people lined up to get a taste of the goodies. At round about 8:00 PM the show started. The whole area went dark and the big screen lit up showcasing all brands participating in the fashion show. Loud music was playing, building the excitement even more. The MC and cover girl of Cosmo Jeans Edit, Nomzamo Mbatha, opened the night with a welcome and introduction.

The show started with Denim Couture, showcasing the most glamorous denim gowns and corsets. Following was a co-branded effort by brands like G-star raw, Charles & Keith, K-Way and more. All the other featured brands started flooding the ramp with the best out of their denim ranges. Sequence, colours, faux fur and tassels stood out in many outfits.

Replay, Foschini, Guess, Forever New, Claires, The fix and off course Soviet dominated the runway. Soviet featured a range of outfits that was paired with a camo/army theme. Ten models (5 male and 5 female) owned the stage with their hard core denim outfits which was accompanied by check shirts, leather jackets, trendy handbags and the famous Soviet sneakers. The Cosmo team added camo caps, dog tags, camo watches, ray bans, berets and big hoop earrings to complete the Soviet look.

The evening ended off with a few songs performed by “Jimmy Nevis”. His back up dancers gave it all they got and closed off the show with a bang. Huge thanks go out to Mr Lee Fraser for all the support and awesome pics!!
