The annual Durban Fashion Fair (DFF2017) is currently underway. Fashion lovers, buyers and the media have gathered at the Durban ICC for four days of fashion, seminars and networking. The city's established and young designers are showcasing their latest collections. Themed "Dawn of the Arts" the fashion extravaganza presented by the eThekwini Municipality will wrap up on Saturday with a glamorous Recognition awards ceremony where the winning designers of the season will be announced.  The DFF Recognition Awards will recognise the Durban Fashion Legend of the year, the Best Ladies’ Wear Collection, the Best Menswear Collection, the Next Generation/ Emerging Durban Designer of the year, the Fashion Innovator and the Collection of the Week.
