THE ultimate model training boot camp is now in full swing as excitement builds up for the fifth installment of the annual Durban Fashion Fair presented by the eThekwini Municipality­.

This investment by the municipality aims to improve the
skill of aspiring models who
were scouted throughout eThekwini and train them in all aspects of modelling, including techniques on how to walk on the runway alongside professional models,
etiquette at photographic sessions and ways of keeping fit and healthy.
This includes focusing on
functional training that incorporates strength training, body weights and aerobics three times a week until the show at the Durban
Exhibition Centre from Wednesday, 31 August to Saturday
3 September.

Jessi Kalambayi, Sivuyile
Makunga, Mondli Shezi, Luthando Keswa, Sne Tembe, Swelihle
Metedad, Thamsanqa Mdluli,
Mathuba Ngcobo were just some of the girls who got “ramp ready” to showcase over 40 designer
collections, including five from
Africa with more than 16 shows.

Prices range from R100 per person per show with students at R50 per student per show.

Prizes for the fashion awards show cost R200 per person, with R100 for students.
