“I was invited to create some awareness regarding the Pavilion and being the destination to shop for the Vodacom Durban July,” said Prince, Famous blogger and fashion designer.
“This event was more about instameet fashion, where fashion bloggers get to come and do like a meet and greet. It was to create the hype and the customer anticipation as we counting down to the Durban July,” said Phindile Makhaphela, digital marketing strategist.
Gorgeous models and fashion designers showed up and showed off. The newly Capetonian Kristina was a must to interview.
