LOOK: Durban Fashion Fair reaches new heights

Durban — The Durban Fashion Fair (DFF) was everything expected and more, from the planning, time management from the team to the glitz and glamour.

The DFF was held at the Durban International Convention Centre at the weekend. The event has been running for 11 years, showcasing the talent of designers, supporting them and helping them grow.

Fashion designers showcased their spectacular clothing designs. The youngest designer was 14-year-old Enhle Gebashe, who displayed the clothes she made from scratch, and handbags.

The event was packed with fashion-conscious people from all walks of life. The clothing that evoked people’s emotions the most was Phakamani Gebashe’s line, called The African God Clothing, a Shembe Nazareth Baptist Church-inspired line. The models walked barefoot, with mats in hand, and the clothing they wore was white, echoing that of Nazareth Church members. The church’s hymns were played in the background as the models walked on the runway.

Gebashe said that he wanted to put his culture into fashion and show people its beauty. Gebashe was barefooted the whole time. The manner in which he conducted himself and spoke showed that he holds everyone in high regard.
