Jan Malan Umzingeli produces stunning EG Graduate show

On Saturday 26 August, Protea Hotel Stellenbosch was once again the venue for the annual Elizabeth Galloway Graduate fashion show.

Jan Malan is an internationally-acclaimed producer whose originality and expertise is legendary in the fashion business. While he took care of the creative side, executive producer Greg Meyer managed to have his finger on every single pulse, keeping things running smoothly. Between the two of them, they instilled calm and confidence in even the most nervous student designer. No wonder then that the event was a resounding success.

Also contributing were The Make-up Issue, who managed to make the beautiful models even more stunning, and Stellenbosch Hair Academy who braided up a storm!

The 2nd year Adult Learners’ ranges were sheer elegance

The 3rd years also produced really cool menswear

The Main Attraction, naturally, was provided by the 3rd year students.

The 4th year Advanced Diploma students also had their spot on the ramp

A big thank you to Brother, who kindly sponsored a number of prizes. These were for Best 1st year Diploma shorts, Best 1st year Degree shorts, Best 2nd year coat, and the Alumni’s Award (3rd year Self-expression).
