    Durban July is the trendiest fashion spectacle, it brings out ones inner fashionista and you are able to express yourself on a garment. I guess the piece is your oyster and you can do whatever with it.

    Matriculating in the class of 2013, I remember leaving space free on my study timetable to catch the Ultimix@6 as well as let off some steam off all the exam stress! I could only say it was his show that kept me sane with all those exams on the table! I would love to win to finally catch the person who’s show got me through my matric year, especially live in action! 😀 Would be pretty spectacular and definitely a night to remember with all the beautiful ladies gracing the catwalk!

    Myself and my partner are starting a fashion business (Loxion Style Expo) that will unleash raw talent from the townships. We have seen how talented young people out there are and we are going to expose them to the fashion world and help them pursue their dreams and that might just be their ticket out of poverty. Going to the fashion show would mean looking at the incredible fashion of course but also networking with some of the best designers in the country… and DJ Fresh will be there, I just love the Ultixim – Kent & Euphonik rock.

    I love fashion and I haven’t ever had the opportunity to glam up for the Durban July. But, everyone loves to party hard and I’d love to have chance to win the tickets, especially after writing law exams. It would be a great memory for the July holidays. And Durban sure knows how to party in style!

    I am an ordinary woman, a single mother of four, I work very hard throughout the year doing my very best to provide for my children. I dress in Black almost everyday as its my work uniform. Attending the Durban July would an excuse to feel like a star, dress in what we “ordinary” women only see on red carpet. A chance to meet people, mingle, unwind, but mostly feel and look beautiful inside and out and lastly enjoy myself.

    Well judging from the clothing on the runway, I’d say that South African fashion has reached international standards (not too African and not too local). From my point of view we’ve infested our minds with garment designs which at times portrays that we trying too hard to such an extent that we forget that simplicity brings out the best designs. This is what causes South African fashion not to sell but nevertheless I’m loving what I’m seeing..Simply, Subtle and Elegant fashion to our doorstep.

    I am a creative looking for local inspiration in not just our countries clothing style but also our countries environments… being able to attend such a event would be the ideal location to gain insight into our local culture when it comes to fashion and people. Winning tickets would be another step that would guide and motivate me as a independent women hoping to burst into the design industry to be a prime example of women empowerment. Please give me another stepping stone towards my future with the opportunity to be inspired and motivated…

Ziggy Alberts announces his debut South African tour as he heads to Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town this October




Ziggy Alberts’ first ever South African visit will anticipate the release of his forthcoming sixth studio album, DANCING IN THE DARK, out 04 November 2022.

Musically, Ziggy’s sound has raised comparisons to the likes of early Ben Howard or Jack Johnson. His sound is laid back, soulful and folk-tinged, and his songwriting is honest and personal. Whilst Ziggy Alberts is similar to his contemporaries in writing about his personal experiences, his music is layered with subtextual references to issues close to his heart, such as the natural world, the human experience and the wider planet.

DANCING IN THE DARK has been driven by real-time releases, including the singles I BELIEVE, TATTOOS, THE GREAT DIVIDE and most recently, THE SUN & THE SEA featuring Donovan Woods, which all find their home on the album. The new record sits in a genre – self-titled by Ziggy – as “Future Folk”. In his own words, “the album is a blend of the honest and raw, with the smoothness and touch of synthesised soundscapes, intentional tuning and programmed organic samples… that reflects accurately the range of experiences we are having as humans in our current world.” Matched with Ziggy’s storytelling and sincere songwriting, DANCING IN THE DARK shows yet another step in Alberts’ growth as an artist, his music and personal explorations, both introspectively and in the natural world.

Founder of his independent label, Commonfolk Records, and book publishing house, Commonfolk Publishing, Ziggy Alberts has managed to craft what many musicians and authors dream of – the ability to tell a story on their own terms. In 2022, Ziggy was awarded an APRA for his track letting go. He has also earned ARIA Platinum certifications for Laps Around The Sun (Double Platinum), Gone, Runaway, Heaven, Love Me Now, Stronger and Four Feet in the Forest (EP), plus Gold certifications for his Laps Around The Sun album and six tracks in his catalogue.
