Positive Heroes is revving up for this year’s fundraising Fashion Show, which we hope will be bigger and better than ever. The theme of this year’s show is Bloom, inspired by the Tennessee Williams quote: “The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.” Our Heroes are like blooming violets, breaking the silence and bringing hope.
Now in its third year, the Fashion Show, which is taking place on the evening of Thursday 3 November, brings together top South African designers in a unique event of fabulous fashion and entertainment, to raise awareness of the stigma surrounding HIV, whilst also raising core funds to ensure that Positive Heroes can exist.
After hosting last year’s show in the brand new Cape Town train station, we thought that venue would be pretty hard to top. But after months of investigation into the more weird and wonderful corners of Cape Town, we’ve found a venue that is slap bang in the heart of our city, that speaks volumes about our mission to make the issue of stigma part of our civic duty – The Cape Town Civic Centre.
The soaring central concourse will make the perfect canvas for some great fashion from Cape Town’s top couturiers, as well as some great entertainment and surprises along the way. This year’s show will see the return of all the great designers who work with us every year, plus some new up-and-coming designers. The show will be in two sections, with two short auctions in between.
Of course, the event couldn’t happen without The City of Cape Town, once again our generous sponsors. Don’t forget to tell your friends about this fashion-fabulous event! More details will be revealed soon.
