Written by: Mfundo Knowledge Mthembu
One of the biggest fashion shows kicked off in Durban at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Centre on Wednesday.
The sixth annual Durban Fashion Fair (DFF) opening night lived up to its expectations as it showcased deigns by young, promising and talented mentees in the fashion industry. Their future definitely looks bright in the world of fashion runways if high fashion, glitz and glamour are anything to go by.
Self-effacing, artistic and talented Azola Tanzi’s designs were a show stopper, as she wowed the room filled with fashion bloggers, influencers, fashion gurus and fashion enthusiasts .
“It hasn’t sunk in yet, I am excited,” said Tanzi. “Basically when I started I wanted something that was not fashion forward but something classic. You can take any look from the collection and you can still wear it ten years from now. Also celebrating women in power, that was the inspiration behind it all.”
Tanzi is most definitely selective and pays attention to detail through her use of colours like maroon and green in her entire collection.
In an interview with Journalismiziko, she explained that one can wear her designs anywhere, including the office, as her colours are not too bright or dull but suitable for all occasions.
