nterested designers, who wish to showcase at the #DFF2022, need to submit the following: designer profile and proof of residential address.
Durban Fashion Fair (#DFF2022) is proud to announce the theme for this year’s show: ‘Expressive Expression’.
The theme primarily relates back to the core and heartbeat of our unique African city of Durban.
Organisers are looking for local Durban designers to create at least three pieces within your collection to showcase on the DFF catwalk in September.
You must illustrate and express to the committee what inspires you to be #proudlylocal, and take this opportunity to put a stamp on your unique creativity, showcase your inspirational style focusing on attention to detail incorporating a distinctly Durban look and feel while allowing you to demonstrate pride to your unique African heritage.
This is your fashion moment to express and showcase your story at the 2022 Durban Fashion Fair, so, with that being said, the eThekwini Municipality is extending an invitation to designers across South Africa, who wish to showcase their creations at the 11th Durban Fashion Fair (DFF) taking place from September 21 to 24 at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre.
Interested designers, who wish to showcase at the #DFF2022, need to submit the following: designer profile and proof of residential address.
Lembede Street, Durban and it must be addressed to Nondumiso Mthembu.
The DFF has claimed its space on the city’s annual fashion calendar and has grown to become of the leading fashion events in Africa.
Those designers selected will have their work showcased alongside the class of 2022 designer mentees. This is a platform for designers work to be seen by the public, the media, buyers and high-profile fashion industry leaders.
The DFF has afforded emerging designers and models with many opportunities over the years. Some brands that were mentored under the DFF Development Programme are supplying major retailers, such as Edgars and Markham. These include Indoni Fashion House, Sista Felas, and House of Alfalfa to name a few.
Furthermore, some models are the ‘face’ of big brands and work for high profile modelling agencies following exposure they received at the DFF.
