UNDER the theme, The Launch, Legado Streetwear, a local unisex clothing line established last year, will host an urban fashion show at Port Elizabeth’s Tramways Building on Wednesday, December 6.

According to Legado Streetwear’s founder, Dominic Fortuin, the show promises to be an exciting event where Legado Streetwear, together with other local upcoming streetwear designers, will collaborate to showcase their designs.

“Streetwear is a distinctive style of street fashion that has grown to encompass elements of hip-hop fashion.

“It commonly centres on casual, comfortable pieces such as jeans, T-shirts, baseball caps, and sneakers,” Fortuin described.

He said seven local designers, which include three Nelson Mandela University students, three local high school students and an established local designer are expected to partake in the event.

“It will be the first time that these young designers get an opportunity to walk their exclusive designs down the runway.”

He added that all the brands represented at the event have a broad spectrum following. “The show will bring brands from all backgrounds together, therefore, showcasing the diversity of the show,” he said.

Legado, a team of five young individuals, prides itself in providing exclusive and quality products to clients.

“The funds generated by the event will be used for the growth and development of the young designers and entrepreneurs to aid in the progress of their business ventures,” Fortuin said.

“We are very grateful to the Mandela Bay Development Agency, as well as Coca-Cola for supporting the event,” he added.

Tickets are available for R100 per person (includes free drinks on arrival). Doors open at 7:30pm for 8pm.
