‘The synergy between the Jo Borkett brand and Yudhika is a good one. Both Jo Borkett and Yudhika represent an elegant sophistication and we are excited about the opportunity’ Alex Borkett, Jan 2013
While preparing for my Saffron TV show, Sugar ‘n Spice, the lovely Alex Borkett offered to sponsor my wardrobe for the show. I had met Alex a few years ago at the Broadacres Superspar…she is a trained chef and a passionate foodie with a serious eye for fashion.
I often pop past the store in Sandton City but I was asked to come in for a fitting at their head office. Hanri Fourie set up a clothing rail with all my options pressed and ready for fitting….I was like a kid in a candy store! Being a real girls girl, this was an afternoon well spent! I got to have an inside look at what the fashion world is like and got some wardrobe tips from the team.
I left the office feeling more confident about my show, and headed off on my next mission which was to find a ‘high fashion’ style metal clothing rail which now stands in my dressing room!
The clothes from Jo Borkett was ingredient needed for some on-screen magic!
