Wine & Design


The Champagne Evening


Platform45 is a web and mobile apps company based in Johannesburg, Cape Town and New York who have launched a series of Wine & Design evenings. They say, “Wine & Design is a forum for designers to share knowledge across fields. Wine & Design is also a forum for designers to drink wine.” Which sounds excellent.


Wine & Design was conceptualised as a monthly bringing together of brilliant people, bright ideas and beautiful food and drink. Each event occupies a fresh space, housing designers from across fields and wines from local farms. So far Platform45 have sponsored a Champagne Evening and a Rosé Evening featuring guest speakers Carl Ascroft and Rikus Ferreira. Next up is the White Wine event taking place on 31 July in Johannesburg.


About the next event:


Join us at at Il Giardino at 44 Stanley on Wednesday, the 31st of July at 7pm, for snacks, amazing wine (sponsored by Freedom Hill) and an amazing top fashion designer – SIES!Isabelle – as our next guest speaker.


In 2006, LISOF alumnus Isabelle Lotter started womenswear label Sies!Isabelle. It was launched at the SA Fashion Week Autumn Winter Collections 2010. Inspired by urban Johannesburg, Isabelle’s design philosophy is to create expressive, blissful, beautiful clothes for the woman who is both fashionable and feminine. Sies!Isabelle stocks more than 10 stores nationwide as well as in Namibia. Isabelle is also a designer for the Edgars X SAFW Designer Capsule Collection.
