Kicking off the 20th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival on Thursday the Fashion and All That Jazz Gala Dinner brought all the glitz and glam to the CTICC (Cape Town International Convention Centre).
Hosted by Al Postman, the annual event is a collaboration between Wear SA and the CTIJF, seeking to highlight local designers who produce their clothing locally and bridge the gap between jazz music and fashion.
This year's theme was Emerald and guests dressed in various shades of the jewel tone.
