Founder of Save the Tie, Save a Child and Mrs Cape Town 2013, Chantal Witthuhn along with Dreamcatcher PR  - a group of NMMU public relations students - bring to Port Elizabeth the Tie’m Warp Fashion Show & Silent Auction on 18 September 2015.

Chantal Witthuhn, also known as the Tie Lady, started the Save the Tie, Save a Child initiative in 2013 as part of her community project for the Mrs Cape Town pageant. Resulting from her numerous visits to the friendly city, she brought her innovative idea to Port Elizabeth and teamed up with seven Public Relations Management students from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University - Dreamcatcher PR - to turn her vision into a reality. As a result, the Tie’m Warp fashion Show & Silent auction was born.

This exciting fashion show will showcase designs from local designers such as Hoiden, Kary Meyer, Yvette Peo, Alecia Gelant, Coleen Louw and Simpiwe Gwebusha. The event offers a unique twist as all the garments are made entirely out of old ties. These creative designs will be auctioned off to members of the audience in an effort to raise funds for the children of the Rolemodels Foundation’s Imfundo Educare Project.

Packed full of originality, the event will take the audience back in time with designs inspired by 100 years of style. Designs are modeled after the fashion trends of the 1900’s right through to the 2000’s.

“If you are interested in fashion, this charity event will certainly tickle your fancy. If you are not, you will, at the very least, be left in awe.” said Keanan Arendse, media liaison for Dreamcatcher PR.

With the acoustic harmonies of local singer/songwriter Gino Soul and an entertaining dance performance by Leanka Laubscher and her School of Dance, this will truly be a night the audience will not forget.

With an incredible line-up of designers and exciting entertainment, the Tie’m Warp Fashion Show & Silent Auction will bring the community together for a great cause. A visit to this affair will intrigue you, amaze you and astonish you, a definite must.” said Margaretha Conradie, member of Dreamcatcher PR.
