Fashion’s sustainability depends on so many constituents. Some of the industry’s thrive points involve sensible planning, a clear goal and grand implementation. I am beyond excited to witness the second annual Durban Fashion Fair happening this week because it is in part, a perfect paradigm of a brilliant outcome if and when an industry is enthusiastically nurtured. Ethekwini Municipality’s Business Support, Tourism & Markets Unit have done a stellar job committing to the small, medium and micro enterprises within the Durban region. Sagaciously, the gov chose to offer a great platform to designers across levels. This four-day-long fair will host young designers, emerging designers(who got to travel to Italy on a learnership earlier in the year), Durban born established designers and come of the country’s finest fashion masters. The minucipality has also invited Top international designers to come and showcase on the same stage too. I will be there, for every single show. Be certain to follow my instant tweets from the front row and reviews right here. See the designer shows lineup below.
