Ostrich in Full Colour at J&B Met

3 February 2010

Ostrich plumes in a blaze of colours were joyfully flaunted at the 33st J&B Met Horse Racing Event held at Kenilworth near Cape Town on 30 January. The theme: “In Full Colour” was captured artfully in elegant designer outfits and several costumes with head-dresses decorated with ostrich feathers in Rio Carnival style rose head and shoulders above 30 000 visitors.

Mrs South Africa, Joani Johnson, presented the South African Ostrich Business Chamber (SAOBC) at the J&B Met – one of the major events on the South African fashion calendar and definitely the biggest summer party annually held in Cape Town.

Joani wore a turquoise dress made from ostrich leather and sliky chiffon, beaded with wooden beads and swarovski crystals for a dash of sparkle. The ostrich leather for the dress was sponsored by SCOT (South Cape Ostrich Tanning) in Mosselbaai, also a member of the SAOBC. Her outfit was complemented by an elegant ostrich leather handbag sponsored by the SAOBC.

Joani was one of the ten finalists at the Mrs World Beauty Pageant held in Vietnam in November last year. Her glamorous evening gown for this event was also made from ostrich leather and ostrich feathers. Deon Oelofse, who also designed Joani’s dress for the J&B Met, has made several designer outfits at the instance of the SAOBC to emphasise the use of ostrich leather and feathers in the fashion industry.
