Breadline Africa's Geek Fashion Show

The words ‘geek’ and ‘fashion show’ tend to be mutually exclusive. Geeks are not known for their ‘model’ looks…rather for their ability to programme, code, develop, tweet and blog. Luckily for Breadline Africa, Cape Town has some helluva good looking geeks. Breadline Africa being the different kind of charity that we are (innovative, amazing, generous, blah, blah, blah) has come up with a rather original (well we say original…some say crazy) idea to throw a Geek Fashion Show featuring some of the top online personalities and bloggers in Cape Town. All proceeds from the tickets sale goes directly to Breadline Africa and our projects. The models include the following personalities (in alphabetical order…yes they are all equally important):

Alex van Tonder

Alistair Fairweather

Aslam Levy

Ben Wagner

Carla Fourie

Christine da Silva

Claire McGuiness

Elodie Kleynhans

• Jasna Zellerhoff

Jonathan Allan-Barrett

• Jon Maliepaard

• Justin Hartman

• Leslie Maliepaard

Matthew Buckland

Mike Metelerkamp

 • Neal Tosefsky

 • Paul Cartmel

Peter Sserwanga

Sarah Blake

The first ever Geek Fashion Show will be held at Daylight Studio on Bree Street on the 26th of April. David Donde will be our gracious MC while Cigar Clothing, Billabong and Puma are the generous clothing sponsors. eNetworks will be sponsoring the sound and some very fancy snacks and wine (with the help of Café Max).

Our grand finale will be an auction of Ard Matthew’s golf shirt that he wore to Nelson Mandela Invitational, followed by an auction of a mystery voucher for Cigar Clothing AND to end the night on a high note, we will be auctioning off Paul Cartmel and Ben Wagner. These two geeks are hot, super successful and the ultimate surfers. YOU can bid on a morning surf with each of them followed by brunch at Knead. So bring loads of cash :)

The event starts at 7pm ( there are ONLY 100 tickets up for grabs @ R170 each and tickets can be bought through Breadline Africa in 2 ways.
