Vodacom Durban July

Attend Durban’s most prestigious event of the year and one of the biggest horse racing events in Africa, The Vodacom Durban July.

Fashion and Thoroughbreds at the Durban July

The Vodacom Durban July draws heavily on horse racing’s deeply-rooted tradition of elegance and chic fashion, and this year will tap into the formal style akin to a dining experience at a cruise liner Captain’s Table dinner.

Not only a great opportunity for designers but also a fun spectator event, this is an event not to be missed! Rub shoulders with local celebrities and fashionistas. If you’re looking to claim the title for the best dressed, enter one of the various fashion competitions. If you think you’ve got what it takes, try your luck with:

  • the Kiss Most Striking Couple
  • Classic Race Wear (male and female categories)
  •  Exceptional Raceday Hat

and many more! For more on how to enter click here.
