7de Laan’s fashion show is blowing up with its Africa Day theme.
7de Laan Weekdays SABC2 (*192) 18:00
7de Laan has used fashion shows as a fan-favourite storyline since the soapie first aired in April 2000. And it’s been nearly six years since we last saw a catwalk episode. In fact, in 2013 designer Annelie (Donnalee Roberts) showcased her fashions right before she left for The Netherlands with her hubby Pieter (Ivan Botha). With a need for some glitz, glamour and fabulous fashion, Hillside gets ready for a locally flavoured runway display on Friday 25 May.
Set designer Bennie Marais and his team had to pack up the T&T sport shop and Bruynwaves office sets to make space. He used a technique called “mapping” to project patterns onto the walls using three-dimensional images and shapes through video projectors.
Pearl Netshiozwi showed off her catwalk strut in a number of designs. Keep an eye on the walls during the episode – the patterns change.
