Converse sponsored two South African influencers to attend their Ambassador Workshop on the 3rd March 2017

In true Converse fashion, the celebrated sneaker brand coupled an ambassador workshop with a party of epic proportions, that perfectly coincided with Paris’ 2017 Fashion Week.

Being proudly South African and working closely with Converse meant that there was no one better to represent South Africa in the fashion capital of the world, than style mavens Fhatuwani Innocent Mukheli and DJ Doowap. The pair’s luxury trip to Paris began with Business Class travel to the city of lights, a spot of pre-party shopping and site seeing, all done whilst sporting their complimentary Converse gear.

The VIP treatment continued for Fhatuwani and DJ Doowap as they were chauffeur-driven to the Converse party’s mystery location where they were then greeted with delicious gin cocktails and all was revealed.

“It turned out to be this incredible venue with long doors and high ceilings,” Fhatuwani reminisces, “and the first thing I saw on entering was an amazing chandelier made of white ‘70s chucks.”

Networking with other unique influencers from all over the world and customizing their very own pair of Chucks were just a couple of the highlights for the attendees.

“I loved the melting pot of ethnicities and the kind of people featuring and representing the brand,” says DJ Doowap, “it made me feel proud to be a part of the brand during such a milestone.”

The after party took place at a Silencio, which is one of the hottest clubs in France conceived by film director David Lynch (best known for the ‘90s hit TV show Twin Peaks) and frequented by many an infamous celeb.
