Fashion Overview

Complimentary to the Vodacom Durban July each year is an important fashion component that plays out during the months before and on the big raceday itself.

The Vodacom Durban July has always been the epitome of chic elegance, and the event’s fashion programme underscores that ethos.

Soon after the annual event theme is announced, students at design colleges and technikons across KwaZulu-Natal start work on their submissions for the prestigious Vodacom Durban July Young Designer Award, a competition that has helped kick-start the careers of many successful South African designers.

The programme is closely tied to the Durban Fashion Fair, from showcasing new talent to judging and mentoring.

Every year the fashion programme includes a non-competitive showcase platform that profiles some of the luminary South African designers’ interpretations of the year’s theme.
