Eight South African designers have been confirmed for the line-up of stars in the Vodacom Durban July Invited Designer Showcase, brought to you by Canon.
The hand-picked line-up, six from KwaZulu-Natal and two from Gauteng, will each produce a series of garments based on the much-talked-about race day theme “Posh? Oh My Gosh!”, which will debut at the Vodacom Durban July Fashion Showcase show at Greyville Racecourse on Wednesday 19 June, and again at a formal dinner on Friday 21 June.
The line-up includes a mixture of some of the fashion industry stalwarts alongside some of the hottest trendsetters making an impression on the recent national and international fashion weeks.
Gauteng trend forecaster Craig Jacobs makes a return to the line-up.
“As the country’s leading racing showcase, fashion has always been ingrained in the culture of the Vodacom Durban July, and it is such a fun event to be part of,” said Jacobs.
“And being given the opportunity to showcase what we do along with the finest design talent in the country in my hometown makes it even more special,” said the man behind the Fundudzi label.
He is joined by fellow Johannesburg designer Hangwani Nengovhela, who’s label Rubicon has been making waves in local couture circles.
The first glimpse that fashionistas will get will be the Vodacom Durban July Fashion Showcase Cheese and Wine evening at Greyville Racecourse on Wednesday 19 June.
