Vodacom Durban July Fashion

July in Durban causes horse fever! The Vodacom Durban July horse race is the biggest on the South African horse racing calendar. But lately the horses seem to run second fiddle to the more important part of the event, that is, the fashion! For weeks leading up to the race fashion competitions are in full swing to see who design the best garment based on the theme (which changes every year). From student designers, to the leading fashions designers around the country, all showing off their garments, designs and abilities, it leads up to a very interesting event on the day.

Then, Race Day arrives and 55 000 people swarm to Greyville race course. Nightmare! But the most interesting part of the day is the race day fashion – the average person in the street showing off their abilities and designs, brings out so really interesting and amazing stuff. Check back after the 7th July 2012 for some race day fashion designs.

Below are some of the shots taking leading up to the Race Day event …
