It’s all about ‘the magic of fashion’ at the July
FROM sparkles to sequins, bows and lace, it’s an open field when choosing an outfit to the biggest race day, just a week away.
For those who haven’t conjured up a spectacular outfit, though, this evening’s Gateway Vodacom Durban July (VDJ) Preview Fashion Show and Concert is set to inspire.
Staying true to the theme of this year’s race, “The Colour of Magic”, Gateway will host the fashion preview of what can be expected on race day.
It also kicks off the pre- parties ahead of the Vodacom Durban July on July 1.
The show will be hosted by model, actress and television presenter Shashi Naidoo and will feature Durban’s famous magician Mo Magic.
The event will showcase collections from the VDJ Fashion Challenge Invited Designer Showcase such as Terrence Bray, Kluk CGDT, Thula Sindi, Rubicon, McCarthy Wolff, House of St Luke, Sadie Bosworth and Sibu Msimang.
According to Tiffany Prior, fashion programme director of the Vodacom Durban July: “This year’s theme, ‘ The Colour of Magic’, is about the magic of fashion, the unexpected and the delightful. Magic makes us believe, draws us in… and so does fashion!”
Some of South Africa’s biggest music artists will perform at the concert which follows the fashion show.
The line- up includes award- winning artists Nasty C, Kyle Deutsch, Aewon Wolf, Sketchy Bongo, Tresor, Timo ODV, Ryki and DJ Ready D.
