#SAFW:DUT students impress at SA Fashion Week

All eyes were on the Durban University of Technology students on day 3 of South African Fashion Week (SAFW) as the aspiring designers took to the runway to showcase their creative designs. 

This year’s theme “Art of Fashion”  focussed on self-expression. 

Using recycled materials, the  DUT class of 2018 showcased creations that are an expression of their identity. 


The inspiration for their collections come from a global environment and how to leave a remarkable statement using their identity. 

“Self-expression is our most basic form of art and without saying a word we can convey who we are, what we believe and give a piece of ourselves to be captured forever,”  says Gideon, Creative Lecturer at DUT. 

Each collection is a reflection of their personal development, style, and character. From the garments that were released, here are some of the designs that stood out the most.
