LOCAL fashion designers impressed adjudicators at the fifth Hibiscus Coast Fashion Show at the Margate Hotel on Friday night as part of a three-day youth summit that was held over the weekend.

Designers exhibited creations made from recyclable waste material - paper cups, plastic, cans and “all things waste”.

Designers made suits from empty chip packets, pipes, toilet­-paper rolls and sack shopping bags.

The theme for the fashion show was Afrodisiac and winning designers didn’t disappoint resulting in the winners earning R15 000.

The grand prize was won by two young female designers from Lansula Designs, Nde Nzimakwe and Zanele Ncane.

Second was Khanyisile R. Ngidi who won R10 000 and third was LxL, who won R5 000.

Siyabonga Sotsu said the aim of this event is to give locals a chance and a platform to be “hands on” in such programmes.

“The programme is intended to provide art administrators, practitioners, promoters and training institutions with an opportunity to participate hands on in matters related to sustainable development of local art and artists.

“They are expected to be working, thinking, doing, processing and creating a favourable environment for all.”
