For Immediate Release
On Friday 17th May 2013 at Cavendish Square Cape Town, CSquared invited its guests, celebrity supporters and certain lucky fans to attend the first public screening of The Great Gatsby. This was in the spirit of appreciating the iconic menswear showcased in Baz Luhrmann’s reworked classic and the launch of CSquared’s The Great Gatsby inspired story from its latest Autumn Winter 2013 Collection in stores now.
The stylin’ and jovial crowd arrived dressed in 20’s theme and were greeted with Peroni refreshments and got to mingle with fashion literati, the CSquared team and other sartorially gifted guests.
The evening started with the crowd snapping photos, mingling and eyeing who what wear.
Some of the best dressed and interesting spottings at the event:
The right kind of Motley Crew - Laurian Kabongo, Danilo Acquisto, Leagan Phillips-Laws, Sianna Wu, Wayne Govender.

As the evening progressed, the event suffered from a temporary bout of organisational blues due to the over-whelming demand of the film screening, and Ster-Kinekor over-booking the theatre with the public. The cinema’s lack of coordination & support naturally caused seating issues and a delay to the show.
Nothing like some pre-show drama to get the audience riled up and in the mood for a prohibition-era film!! **
Nonetheless, after guests adjusted their seating and settled in, they were treated to a visual feast of wonder, fashion, excess, glamor and heart-wrenching romance played out between hollywood ‘s best pulse-raising talents.
Notable tweets after the show from the guests on what they thought about the drama off and on screen:

CSquared sincerely thanks all who attended and genuinely appreciate every bit of support and good faith shown by our loyal friends in fashion and fans. You all looked super stylin’ and gorgeous, and we look forward to bringing you even better experiences in menswear.
Till next time - Lets Misbehave.
