Media Release | Italian Designer Diego M Will Be Showing At Durban Fashion Fair 2013

Well known Italian outerwear designer, Diego M, will showcase his exclusive outwear collection on the runway at this year’s much anticipated Durban Fashion Fair in August.

For his showing on the catwalk at the Durban Exhibition Centre on Saturday, August 24, Diego Mazzi has created a capsule collection comprising garments that are handmade using some of the world’s most innovative and audacious leathers – a coco-printed nappa with mother-of-pearl glassy effect and spotted leather with a metallic mosaic, that reflects silver and champagne tones.

Founded by husband and wife partners, Diego Mazzi and Manuela Bortolameolli, in 2003, Diego M. is an Italian fashion brand focused on outerwear. Diego Mazzi has lived and breathed fashion for thirty years. With the ability of a great trendsetter and a musician’s acute sensitivity, he pinpoints and explores new directions in fashion, adapting them to modern tastes.

Each Diego M piece is on trend, unique and elegant with a magical blend of pure luxury,  wear-ability and urban chic. Diego M creations can be found in prestigious boutiques in Europe, Russia and the United States. The brand’s own style centre is located in Lazise, on the banks of Lake Garda in Milan.

The Durban Fashion Fair will be held from August 22 to 25 at the Durban Exhibition Centre and will showcase unique garments created by Durban’s design talents – from new designers who are just finding their feet on the catwalk to emerging talents who were treated to an internship in Milan, one of the fashion capitals of Europe, following Durban Fashion Fair 2012. Ten newcomers will be selected for a similar internship this year.
Tickets to the exciting fashion shows at the Durban Exhibition Centre are now on sale through Computicket at just R100 per person per show and R50 for students per show.
