Escorting the lovely brides, male models will be dressed by Ghela Outfitters and The Company Man’s. Established in 1911, Ghela has almost 100 years of experience in gents’ clothing. They pride themselves on offering you more value, style and brands to suit the individual.

The Company Man’s, owned by Brett Beckett, is one of the leading privately owned men’s clothing shops in KZN. Personal relationships with the clientele has been built up over 24 years. An elegant and inviting atmosphere complements the exclusive range of select men’s clothing.

The models will then wear dresses from Phindilicious Bri­dal Boutique. Owner Phindile Grootboom, who is based in Pine­town, not only supplies impor­ted wedding gowns, but also designer gowns suitable for exclusive events. Included in her collection are designer hats, jewellery, bags and tiaras.

Locally based Eternal Designs, run by a mother and daughter, will then be in the spotlight with a design for every season. With a passion for fashion, creativity and an eye for detail, they design couture garments, creating timeless memories.

We then move into a cultural flavour where models will wear glamorous Eastern attire from new tenant Sabah Collection (shop No. 212). From sparkling accessories to designer wear fit for the stars, Sabah Collection has it all and will ensure you get the best in Eastern fashion at affordable prices

Then take an African journey as we showcase a range from Lethiwe Vilakazi. A graduate from the School of Fashion and with numerous awards to her name, Lethiwe believes in respecting her culture and carrying through those African values in her designs.
