A fancy feast at this year’s DFF

1_Karen-Monk-Klijnstra

Fashion lovers converged at the Durban International Convention Centre over the weekend, to sharein the delights of Durban Fashion Fair. Hosted by eThekwini Municipality, the event saw local and international designers show off their very latest offerings.

With garments from Karen Monk-Klijnstra, Kathrin Kidger, Zarth, Ruth Rankin, C-Squared, Massimo Crivelli and a host more, it was a feast for fashion conscious eyes, as models swayed and sashayed in beautiful garments.

This year’s event added a little pizzazz to the format by adding off-site shows, which were hosted at Durban Botanical Gardens. The audience was taken to the Gardens via People Mover buses. Despite the usual behind-the-scenes drama and onstage bloopers, some of which spilled onto social media sites, this year’s DFF was definitely one to remember!

Durban North resident and metro police officer, Devan Govender, accused of premeditating his girlfriend, Rosemary Bell’s, murder, was granted bail set at R10 000 by magistrate Vanita Armu at his bail application today, 28 August.

Represented by attorney, Sunil Singh, the 44-year old, twice divorced father of three, applied for bail via his attorney, stating that exceptional circumstances existed, in that his 18-year old daughter was due to start her matric exams and the circumstances of the case at hand, as well as his incarceration, was having a tremendous psychological effect on her emotional state.

Singh stated that Govender would not be a flight risk, due to the fact that he had his ex-wife and two children living in his flat in Victoria Embankment and they were financially dependent on him.
