PIETERMARITZBURG City Hall was full of excitement last Saturday as a premier fashion event, hosted by the Pietermaritzburg School of Fashion Design, took place.

Celebrating their 53rd anniversary with a booming spectacle of fashion showcases unravelling in front of an audience of students, bloggers, high profile guests and hundreds of excited people, the fashion school did not disappoint.

The ramps were decorated with creative spirit as the talented students from the Pietermaritzburg Fashion School showcased what they have learned throughout the year by putting together well-made and exquisitely designed garments which were modelled by Irene’s Modelling Agency models.

“It was a proud moment for all of us. The designs from our students and the beautiful models continued to fascinate the audience throughout the night,” marvelled Pietermaritzburg School of Fashion Design director Priscilla Bhika.

Of the 70 students who produced and showcased stunning collections, six were selected by chief judge Greg Wallis to represent Pietermaritzburg at the 2019 Fashion Fair.

The Pietermaritzburg School of Fashion Design also celebrated a few of their graduates who won accolades during the year as well as those that were selected for the reality fashion programme Raw Silk, which will be airing on SABC 1 soon for its second season.

Among the esteemed guests were various Pietermaritzburg councillors as well as former student Martin Steenkamp, who has won several awards across the country. Steenkamp’s most recent accolade saw him being selected as Fashion Innovator of KZN at the Durban Fashion Fair.

“The quality of the show was of an international standard and home grown talent, creativity at its best. Fashion is a lucrative career path and all graduates of the college are ready to start their own business,” said Bhika.
