Dressed for the Met
26 January 2005
P4’s Chris Naidoo stepped out in style at this year’s J&B Met, having been dressed by top European fashion stylist, Olivia Davidson.

Chris, an account executive with ‘The heart and soul of Cape Town’ P4 radio was dressed in a simple pair of light linen trousers teamed with a patterned shirt, designed by Shakur Olla, and finished with a Panama hat.

Following a consultation with fashion stylist Olivia, when the pair discussed suitable styles, clothes, cuts and colours, Chris enjoyed an accompanied shopping trip to some of Cape Town’s most prestigious shops, including boutiques at the V&A Waterfront and trendy Greenpoint.

Although the theme for this year’s Met was fashions from the 1920’s, Chris said he wanted to go for a more comfortable and casual look for the occasion, so preferred the more cool and trendy look for the Kenilworth event .

Chris said, “I found Olivia’s consultation very useful, I learnt a lot about how to select clothes, what styles and colours I should be wearing, and also what looks are in for 2005. It was also a handy hint to try on everything before you buy, you never really know what the clothes are going to look like until you’ve tried them on.

“Olivia chose clothes from Shakur Olla that I loved, and I thought that the final look achieved was great!”

Parisian born Olivia, who has trained and worked in Paris and London, has recently moved to Cape Town. She is available for consultations and advice by appointment.
