2013 fashion theme for Durban July Handicap


 
POSH? OH MY GOSH!

It’s classy this year so mind your P’s and Q’s,
To give you direction, here are a few clues.

Have a look at Ascot, so proper so right,
A touch of class, a couturier’s delight.
It’s the look and feel we’re talking about,
So refined, quite grand without a doubt.

At Longchamp the French do it with flair,
Understated elegance in their finery fair.
The Melbourne Cup is one special day,
Even the Aussies sport the fashion way.

So what’s Durban to do to make this unfold?
Tasteful, chic style, the story be told.
Year twenty thirteen is lucky for most,
Raise the fashion bar on KZN’s east coast.

A modern interpretation of days gone bye,
Fair ladies, fine gentlemen will catch the eye.
A final clue if you’re still in doubt,
It’s posh, posh, posh we’re talking about.

The Vodacom Durban July
Africa’s Greatest Horseracing Event

We invite 8 designers who have established businesses or brands. Preferably, they must have shown on other major events such as SA Fashion Week, Jhb Fashion Week, CT Fashion Week etc. This is not a platform for designers who want to launch themselves or a brand, it is for those with a good fashion history, established studios and where possible, retail outlets. An established national, media profile is very important. The above criteria must be current. We invite 2 designers from Johannesburg and 6 from Durban, in an effort to give as many Durban designers the opportunity to show, we never show a Durban designer in 2 consecutive years. Please bear in mind, this also does not mean that you will automatically be invited to show every second year!

It is a very elegant, chic, stylish and classical theme, stay away from anything that is too theatrical or Avant Garde.

Judges will be looking for garments that are on trend and beautifully executed, fit, quality and finish are very important. Consider all aspects of your look, the hat, accessories, shoes and overall grooming. You are designing or dressing for a raceday, not an evening event, please keep this in mind.
