Spring was in the air when The Afropolitan Magazine teamed up with top luxury shopping precinct Melrose Arch in a unique event filled with open-air dining, new spring fashion launches, celebrity shoulder-rubbing and exclusive guest offers. The glittering shopping experience took place over two nights at the Upper Galleria of Melrose Arch between Elegance Jewellers and Fabiani all the way to Churchills and Forever New.


One of the highlights of the evening was a spectacular fashion show, put on by fashion designer icon Serge Kabisoso of Fashion Without Borders (FWB). Serge is an ambassador for Vodacom Red, one of the sponsors of the Al Fresco event. Premium fine fragrance company Bacher Co. showcased their top fragrances, including Dunhill and Creed, in a fabulous experience of pairing fruits with the notes of the fragrances. On arrival guests were invited by Jaguar Landrover into their VIP Lounge where the latest Range Rover Evoque Cabriolet was on show. 

The first evening was ‘by-invite-only’ where Melrose Arch and The Afropolitan’s most influential associates were in attendance, with an exclusive first look at all the incredible fashion deals on offer. The second evening welcomed the public for the same incredible experience. The Culinary Co provided elegant eats, and beverages were served out of Churchills Bar, with Stella Artois and Scottish Cousin by Van Loveren Wines putting in an appearance.
