In living up to its slogan of ‘The Show Goes On’, the much-anticipated Durban Fashion Fair (#DFF2020) Class of 2020 show is ready to showcase the work of designer mentees and new face models next month. The show will be hosted simultaneously with the Durban Fashion Fair (DFF) Recognition Awards that rewards excellence in the industry on Friday evening, 11 December at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre.
This event will not only celebrate the fascination of fashion but also introduce newcomers (models and designers) to the world of fashion – a move that could prove central to growing Durban’s clothing and textile industries and boosting the city’s economy.

Their garments will be modelled by the #DFF2020 new face female models: Mbali Buthelezi, Minenhle Shinga, Nokukhanya Bulose, Nokwethemba Zondo, Nombulelo Mthembu, Sanelisiwe Mngoma, Sebolelo Hlabi, Sinenhlanhla Mthethwa, Thobekile Mzila, Uviwe Tonga, Zandile Sikhakhane, Zobaphi Hlongwa – not to forget our new face male models: Malik Ibrahim, Melusi Ngcobo, Mluleki Hlophe, Ndabezinhle Msomi, Simphiwe Zulu, Siyabonga Jompolo, Sizwe Mchunu and Vukile Magwaza.
