Who is the artist for the huge performance??
Tamara Dey will be performing and she has been “dubbed the First Lady of Kwaito, an icon of township pop, & ‘The First Lady of Song’ (Sunday Times).” <— Just click on her name to read more about her.

Guest Designer
This is where all the hype comes down to…the guest designer…Gavin Rajah ….Just from his website you can tell that he is not about jokes when it comes to designing. He regularly shows at the Paris Fashion Week and he is based in Cape Town. If you can only afford one ticket then I would say, choose the day he is showcasing.
