Fashion and fun at the Durban July

The Vodacom Durban July took place this past Saturday, 5 July 2014. There was fantastic hospitality, interesting fashion interpretations of the ‘Big Screen’ theme, lots of fun and, of course, horse racing.

Below are a few photos from one of this year's biggest social events ...

The theme for this year was 'the Big Screen', so patrons were tasked with dressing to their interpretation of this. Some were inspired by old Hollywood, while others were a bit more avant-garde in their interpretations.

Boomtown, one of the Durban July attractions, included performances from local artists including Da L.E.S, Mi Casa, Zakes Bantwini and Black Coffee.

Pictured below is local hip hop artist Da L.E.S. performing at Boomtown.

If you are ever in South Africa in July, consider attending the Durban July on the first weekend of the month for a fashion and horse-racing extravaganza.
