Internationally celebrated fashion designer Gavin Rajah is set to launch his body range and fragrance collections later this year.

Launching on 1 September this year, the body and fragrance ranges are filled with an abundance of South African floral ingredients and exotic elements – perfect to spice up the aurora in anyone's home.

The Gavin Rajah body and fragrance ranges were introduced to the media at an intimate launch, which was a luncheon held at Q54 in Cape Town's CBD, saw a number of fashion media and VIP's in attendance, to witness a sneak preview of Durban-born Rajah's 2014 showcase at Cape Town's Fashion Week, as well as the introduction of the Gavin Rajah body range and fragrance collections.

The Body collection is nothing short of sheer opulence, consisting of sultry room spray, rich body cream, luxury shower gel, voile body mist, elixir body oil as well as a revitalising hand wash.

“The magical elixir melds to create a range of body products that is ethically sourced and a true collection of proudly South African luxury,” said Rajah.

All the body range products have a mixture of clary sage and rosemary infusions, along with orange oil, orange flowers and jasmine notes, to complete the unique scents.

Rajah, a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, announced that proceeds from the body range will go to a “good cause”, for an initiative which the fashion designer initiated himself.

“Ten rand from every product sold will go towards programmes focused on ending violence against children,” he shared.

Meanwhile, Rajah successfully showcased his new couture collection, called A Floating World: Ukiyo-E, at Cape Town Fashion Week, with the who's who of Cape Town in attendance.

The collection itself celebrates the art of hand craft, while Japanese symbolism and colour play an important part in the embellishment of his collection.

“This is a collection for a modern woman, urban and worldly woman. I love designing over-the-top couture and I won't stop doing just that any time soon,” he admitted.
