All shows are in the Champions Room, First Floor, Greyville Racecourse.

Synonymous with the Vodacom Durban July is a vibrant fashion programme that starts months ahead of the biog raceday, encompasses enthusiastic designers from every corner of the country, identifies and rewards emerging talent, and reaches a climax with a series of stunning fashion experience shows at Greyville Racecourse in the days before the Vodacom Durban July.

The big day is an opportunity to let your hair down and show off your creativity in an eye-catching outfit for the big day. Based on the year's theme, racegoers are encouraged to put together garments for raceday that add to the special occasion. The competitive-minded designers enter the raceday competitions, and the edgy and daring are showcased in the Avant Garde raceday competition.
Pre Raceday Competitions
Young Designer Award
The varsity, technikon and designs students exhibit their cutting edge sense of fashion, pushing the envelope and loving the unfettered freedom that this competition offers. With career-changing prizes on offer, and a national media platform to showcase their talent, the students dazzle and astound, often setting trends that reappear throughout the build-up to, and on the big raceday itself!

Fashion Challenge
So many big name designers first made their mark on this stage! This well established competition always attracts big name designers from around the country, while at the same time giving a chance to enthusiastic designers and fashionistas to show what they can do, and compete on an equal footing with some of the industry's pacesetters!

Invited Designer Showcase
A highlight of the Vodacom Durban July. Eight handpicked designers, each one of them a household name in their own right, get to showcase a range in a non-competitive and glitzy show environment, featuring raceday ensembles, showstopper outfits and over-the-top hats. Catch these outfits being premiered at the Fashion Experience shows before the big day!
