Ice-Watch South Africa team cutting the Ice-Watch cake at the launch

ICE-WATCH South Africa finally launches their colourful, funky, timeless, YOU-GOTTA-ROCK-ONE, glam watches last week Thursday (27 January 2011) at TABOO, Sandton, and we were on hand to witness the successful event.

Of course, with all the arranging of the guest lists and co-ordinating such an event…some things are bound to go wrong. The venue was changed on the day of the event without much notice to the invitees! Crazy, right!? And Black folks and time (we gotta do better y’all). We just stay committed to not starting anything on time… Fortunately, I managed to arrive at the new venue, TABOO, just in time for some fun times! And fun times we had…

The guests were welcomed to the event by Fadwa Mohammed (ICE WATCH South Africa partner),who also showcased the affordable, colorful and unisex watches. If you don’t have an ICE-WATCH, you gotta rock one! They are sweet! We were later entertained by Steven Lee (winner of Motorlo Rockstar competition) who stunned guests by his vocals and his diverse dance moves….and boy, the ladies really had fun watching him perform! Awwuuuu….

Thereafter we had the ‘Chandelier Girl‘ all the way from Amsterdam performing mad aerobatic and soft moves up on the chandelier!  She finished off with pouring champagne for some of the guests, into champagne glasses whilst she hung in the air. Loved it! You just had to be there so see this…

*You are seeing correct, girlfriend is hanging up-side*…

Guests were treated to some yummy hors d’oeuvres & cocktails, entertainment with beautiful ICE-WATCH models displaying the funky watches on the floor. I also caught up with some South African celebs who attended the launch event; Tembisa Mdoda (Highveld stereo presenter), Mpho Mboi (supersport presenter), Kaos (Selimathunzi presenter), Lerato Sengadi (big brother Africa), Dineo (ChannelO presenter) and DJ Franky….wow,wow,wow!!! These guys really know how to party. We threw down on the dance-floor…

Amongst other celeb guests, I spotted Claire Mawisa (model and presenter), Pam Andrews (actress-Rhythm City), Maurice Page (actor-Isidingo), Pearl (Yfm stereo presenter) with Pearl Thusi (model), and of course Ms. Khanyi Mbau herself (South Africa’s infamous socialite) who shared the ICE Watch moment with us…

Guests got a stunning ICE-WATCH each as a gift from Farah Fortune & her team….and because the night was still young, alot of us stayed to party the night away…

The ICE-WATCH launch was all around a fab event, with beautiful people launching a stunning new collection of watches! Thanks to the uber fab Farah & her team for a great job!


Will You Be Rocking An ICE-WATCH?!?
