The curtain is expected to come down in spectacular fashion when Gugulethu’s year-long 60th anniversary comes to an end later this month.

To end the celebrations that began at the start of the year, organisers have put together a fashion show that will feature some of the country’s renowned personalities, including Somizi Mhlongo, Unathi Mankayi, local musician McCoy Mrubatha and this year’s Idols winner Yanga Sobethwa.

The extravagant Gugulethu Fashion show will happen on Sunday 23 December, at the Gugulethu Sports Complex from 12:00 to 20:00.

“The aim is to create a platform for local designers to showcase their designs,” said Phumzile Nteyi, one of the organisers. “The fashion show will also assist in creating jobs and opportunities for local vendors”.

Nteyi said the plan is to make the show an annual event. “Our hope is to launch it this year and thereafter make it an annual event for Cape Town just like other towns do it annually, like Ebubeleni Festival (PE), Buyel’ekhaya (EL), Macufe (Bloemfontein)and many others around the country.”
