Bongi Mvuyana Live perfomance Kluk CGDT

In case you haven’t noticed, the exceptionally talented, designer duo Malcom Klûk and his partner Christiaan Gabriel du Toit of the eponymous label Klük CGdT are not on the showcase line-up for this year’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Jo’burg.

My heart is bled all sorts of technicolor cocktail when I realised this because whenever these two present a collection, parts of me exhilarate fiercely. They [always] bring IT and they [always] Bring IT really hard… like, all the time.

I have however found comfort in thinking that they are probably hurdled in and working towards a return to the runway like no other. This consolation settled a few days ago when I went to experience Bongi Mvuyana’s performance at the opening of YSWARA’s luxe store in Parkhurst.

During the mightily gifted songress’ vigorous live performance, I noticed that Bongi wore remarkable outfits from the designer house’s coveted archives. My excitement shot sky high as the new artist looked every bit like the Mega-Star she is clearly destined to be.

For her first performance when opening the show, the darling Bongi wore a floor length lilywhite silk dress with lace appliqué cascading off one shoulder –I later learnt that it was initially created as a bridal gown, but because of its stylish functionality, one could not tell. Her second outfit change for the meet and greet session was a jewel-toned sea green number with an unassuming high-low hemline worn with tasselled royal blue earrings and matching pointy toe pumps.  The final gear-up for the mini concert fitted the occasion beautifully. At this point she wore a pearl toned sleeveless ball gown with a generously bubbled hemline at a tea-length. The dress had a mini trail and looked fab-tastic worn with a contrasting Pichulik neckpiece.
