One Night Only at The Fringe

Last night saw a ‘one night only’ collaboration exhibition between fashion designer Margot Molyneux (below right) and jeweller Dear Rae (aka Karin Matthee, below left) at The Fringe on Kloof Street.

The talented designers, who have long been fans of each other’s work, were both showcasing their new winter ranges in the raw exhibition space. Strong, structural piece and geometric shapes proved a common thread between the two, both of whom favour a breezy, ready-to-wear look.

Fringe owners Chantal Louw and Thessa Bos, whose space is currently under renovation, are passionate about promoting young designers and were more than willing to host the girls for this once-off event. Pop-up exhibitions offer an ideal opportunity to grab public attention and showcase talent that would otherwise be overlooked.

The Fringe will be stocking over 70 designers when they open to the public on 15 June, providing a more permanent residence to the concept of ‘pop-up’.
