LOCAL fashionista Brenda Quin won the Best Ladies Wear Collection Diva for a collection of electric colours and bold styling at the Durban Fashion Fair (DFF).
The award was presented by the eThekwini Municipality at the 2016 Fashion Fair Recognition Awards, currently celebrating five years, at the Inkosi Chief Albert Luthuli­ International Convention Centre on Saturday night.

Quin said she was humbled by the recognition of her collection - Rhythm of Africa.
"I am blown away and feel honoured­ to have showcased [my designs] on this wonderful platform that Sindisiwe Shangase and her team have worked tirelessly to create­.

"I have been privileged to work with Deon Redman Creative Production and his sterling team, Dino Moronduzzo­ for sound and Sim Tshabalala, who always has a smile on his face," she added.

Business support programme manager Sindi Shangase who has driven the DFF from the outset in 2012, and presented many of the awards, said that the DFF Fashion Recognition Awards was introduced last year to recognise the contribution that fashion made to the city’s economy.

“All our winners deserve the recognition.
“Well done to them all, as well as my appreciation to all who participated in making our fifth year another success,” said Shangase.
