Magnetic Storm collaborates with Jason Kieck to bring exotic Desert Nights to Port Elizabeth audiences 

Magnetic Storm is delighted to be partnering with Jason Kieck’s latest fashion extravaganza and gala dinner for the tenth year running. 

The event this year, Desert Nights, will see designs from talented designer Jason Kieck, give a gentle nod to the romance and mystery of the desert. Talking about his partners, Jason Kieck says: “The businesses who come on board to support our charity events are more than partners, they are like family to us. Magnetic Storm has supported our events and brought our creative concepts to life with incredible technical expertise. I like to take the audience on a sensory journey and the team manages to bring life to my vision year after year.“ 

Desert Nights is in aid of the Igazi Foundation, an organisation that aims to improve blood cancer and blood disease services in South Africa. The beneficiary for the past five years, the foundation was established in the Eastern Cape in 2010, and has grown to become nationally and internationally recognised as the champion of haematology issues, in the broader struggle for better health care services in South Africa.  

“We’re delighted to offer our expertise to this glamorous and prestigious event that raises an immense about of awareness and funds for an incredible cause,” remarks Jane Stevenson, Magnetic Storm Director. “Our technical crew and creative minds have been working with Jason on a concept that feeds the theme, highlights his incredible designs and takes everyone on a journey.” 

With two thirds of tickets already sold for the event happening in Port Elizabeth on September 28th, the evening is set to be a full feast for the senses and a memorable evening for everyone.
