Alek Bruessing photographed KLÛK CGDT total looks for VESTAL mag. The spread was produced by South African production specialist EUROCONNECTION and its Producer Julie Van Damme Lagoe. Native South African Malcolm Kluk, who graduated from London's St. Martin's College, and Christiaan Gabriël Du Toit, who studied design at the Cape Technikon Fashion School, are the creatives behind the equally renowned and hip label KLûK CGDT.
'For Malcolm and Christiaan, their label represents the culmination of two designers’ passion and the vision of bringing South Africans an international experience of fashion. It is immediately evident to anyone that careful consideration has been given to each garment; from the fabric selection to the cut of the garment and the finishes of each piece. It is this careful consideration and attention to detail that distinguishes their clothes as luxury garments.
Both designers were born in South Africa: Malcolm completed his education in England (he studied at St. Martins College in London and did his apprenticeship under John Galliano); Christiaan grew up in Worcester in the Western Cape and studied design at the Cape Technikon Fashion School.
Malcolm returned to South Africa to forecast trends and design for various South African labels as well as for a long stint as fashion editor for Cosmopolitan magazine before opening his own lifestyle studio in De Waterkant, Cape Town. This studio followed the design principles of style, sophistication & quality (“the true hallmarks of a contemporary identity”) and set new standards for fashion shopping. Malcolm has been mentored on design projects by Phillipe Starck, Jimmy Choo and American Vogue’s Hamish Bowles. He has been a board member of the CT fashion council and has been nominated for a Fairlady Fashion award twice as a young designer and twice as an established brand. Christiaan has been awarded “Most Promising Designer” at Cape Technikon in 2001. He has also been awarded prizes at the Nederburg Collections in 2001 and 2002 and was nominated for the Fairlady Fashion Awards in 2005.
Malcolm and Christiaan have worked together since 2003 and have formed a dynamic and evolving partnership. Their brand is not only about clothes, but rather about life and a holistic experiential, boundary-blurring approach to style. Their collaboration represents the pinnacle of their separate creative processes, and each designer brings specialized expertise and unique visions to the partnership.'
KLûK CGDT has participated in New York Fashion Week, Russian Fashion Week, Swedish Fashion Week, Singapore Fashion Week (opening gala dinner). Arise Fashion Week Lagos and shown in Delhi and Mumbai and Paris by invitation. Also South African Fashion Week, Cape Town Fashion Week, JHB Fashion Week, Durban Fashion Week, Durban Designer Collections, Nederburg Designer collections, Fairlady Fashion Awards, Positive Rocks for SA Hospice with whom they continually align themselves together with the Children’s Hospital Trust.
The label has won a Lifetime Achievement Award and African Designer of the Year 2011 and 2012 at Africa Fashion Week Lagos, the “Most Stylish Designers” at the SA Style awards, “Best Red Carpet Designers” at the Africa Fashion Awards, and “Best Red Carpet designers” by Marie Claire Magazine Prix de Excellence.
KLûK CGDT has appeared in international magazines like American Vogue, Elle, French Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Spruce, I-D and Dazed. Wallpaper and Monocle magazine – hear, hear!: - have selected KLûK CGDT as the only fashion brand in their Cape Town city guide... GoSee : klukcgdt.com
