FACT: DURBAN ROCKS! I saw this statement written on DJ Tira's t-shirt, a famous DJ who hails from the city. Even though he might have been referring to the party scene, I think the city's fashion scene rocks too. Many of South Africa's most accomplished designers; Gavin Rajah, Amanda Laird Cherry, Leigh Schubert, Craig Native - to mention just a few, are from Durban. I don't think it's odd for Durban to have its own fashion week, I think it provides a great platform for young designer based in Durban to launch themselves to the rest of the country, and for the established designers to show what Durban has on offer to the world.
Go and check it out, it's at the Sun Coast Casino, right by the beach; it's the perfect location...Woza eDurban.
