At Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion Design the tension is almost tangible, as the date of the annual Fashion Event draws near. Third year students are busily sewing away at their self-expression ranges in this the final month before the show on Saturday the 16th of August, and as can be expected, tears and tantrums are seldom far away!

But never fear, just persevere, and all will be well. Soon the excitement will take over, and you will cherish the experience for the rest of your lives.

The venue for the event once again is the Protea Hotel in Techno Park, and as has become the tradition at EGAFD, there will be three shows on the day. At 15h00, first and second year students get the opportunity to show off what they have learnt so far, before the Graduate Class of 2014 step into the spotlight in two groups, the first at 17h00 and the second at 19h00.

Front row tickets have been reserved for sale to parents, guardians and bursars.The front row tickets can only be purchased from Vuyiseka at the haberdashery shop at R 180 per ticket. These will be available up to 31 July 2014; thereafter they will be made available to the general public. Please note that only cash or proof EFT will be accepted at the shop.

Ordinary tickets are available online through Webtickets, also at R180.
