AMP Cares The Princess Project
On Saturday 27th July 2019, we held our first ever COSMO Matric Event at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre. It was an incredible day and all the girls who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves and truly transformed into COSMO Matric princesses.
As part of our CSI initiative, we invited community leaders from The Princess Project as our special COSMO VIP guests and extended the invitation to their outreach regions. We had over 30 girls attend and it was heart-warming to watch their transformation through the day.
As we managed the registration process in the morning, we witnessed our young guests arrive. They were shy, awkward and extremely quiet. But as the day progressed their magnificent transformation was not only style-related but their personalities were evident too. The girls had their hair, make-up and nails done at various sponsored stations while sipping on mocktails, eating delicious food and meeting their favourite COSMO influencers.
Our COSMO Fashion styling team created a Fashion Station – which looked like a true celeb’s boudoir. The guests from The Princess Project and our COSMO readers tried on and their perfect matric dress and received styling tips from our COSMO Fashion Editors.
We collected matric ball dresses from the ladies in the AMP office and Edgars donated a gift voucher worth R5 000 to The Princess Project which was handed over to Erica Pienaar, the co-founding member of The Princess Project along with the dresses and accessories we collected.
“I just want to say thank you for the amazing time we had yesterday and the function. Everything was spot on and all the staff and sponsors were amazing. This was the first event and I’m so looking forward to the others. This was an awesome success. My princesses are speechless at the treatment they were given and being treated like royalty, they don’t know how strangers can be so kind to people they don’t know. Looking forward to working with you in the future”, said one of the project leaders from the Princess Project.
