GATEWAY School of Fashion represented Pietermaritzburg fashion proudly at this year’s Durban July, walking away with various honours and placing in the top 10 of a few categories at the fashion show at the Greyville Racecourse on Saturday.

Six second-year and one first-year student entered the Best Dressed Female category where designer Ayanda Mkhize from Mpophomeni featured in the top 10 for his maroon print pants and top while principal of the school, Brenda Warring, placed in the top 10 in the Best Dressed Female category and won third place overall with her striking designs.

“This was a very good experience for our students as most of them come from disadvantaged backgrounds and the opportunity opens their eyes to what’s happening in the fashion industry,” said Warring.

The principal added that she is very proud of her students for their efforts, including first-year student Pamela Shabane who designed a stunning crop top and skirt outfit.

Speaking on her success at the July, Warring said that her designs included names of African individuals who have been stars on the continent, which received a lot of positive reviews from media and spectators.
