2019 SA Fashion Week highlights, HospiceWits Night with the Stars

As the fashion gods gather in anticipation for the AFI Cape Town Fashion Week at the weekend, NOWinSA takes a look at some of the best fashion moments at the SA Fashion Week finale days earlier


THE HospiceWits Night With The Stars pulled all the stops to make this year’s fundraiser a night to remember not only for fashionistas, fashion industry experts and media who were treated to a visually spectacular show and presentation.

An important part of HospiceWits’ annual fundraising efforts, this is where we get to see some of South Africa’s big players in all things showbiz coming together with a common purpose – that goes beyond style.

This year, more than 100 A-list celebrities joined forces with top local fashion designers – such as Gert-Johan Coetzee, Black Coffee, Maxhosa by Laduma, Clive Rundle, JJ Schoeman and Thebe Magugu – to model their unique creations, which will be distributed to various HospiceWits shops. Money raised from their sales will go towards providing care and support for patients with terminal illnesses and their families.
