Escape the winter this July!
The best kept secret, “slap bang” in the middle of South Africa’s winter months is eThekwini (aka Durban)- in the friendly province of Kwa-Zulu Natal. With its glorious tropical climate, temperatures averaging around 24 degrees with little chance of rain- there really isn’t a good reason to not take some time off and seek what Durban has to offer.
Now we can’t really refer to it as a “best kept secret” as the Vodacom Durban July attracts around 55, 000 people to Greyville Racecourse annually to enjoy a day of glitz, glamour and of course magnificent Thoroughbred racehorses, but this is the event of the year- be it from a social perspective, if you are passionate about horseracing and last, but certainly not least, the fashion.
The theme this year- It Is Time- has caused some anguish amongst the students who will be taking part in the Vodacom Durban July Young Designer Award, but for the self professed guru’s out there, and the outfits that we have seen across the country at the various horseracing events in recent months; the Sansui Summer Cup, L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, the Sun Met and the breathtakingly elegant Princess Charlene HSH Race Day, we don’t think this is a tall order at all!
Racing. It’s A Rush wants to give their followers some inspiration for the competition currently underway, which ends on the 30th June, whereby you are invited to send in a photo via Facebook/ Instagram or Twitter of what you would be wearing on the 7th July- including #ItsARush and #MyVDJstyle in the posts.
The hottest outfit will win a VIP package which will include flights, accommodation, transfers to and from the airport/ hotel/ race track and the best seats in the house to be witness to the most exciting event on the social calendar.
It will be a prerequisite to make a long weekend of it and book Friday, 6th July off as this is when the experience will start…..
Enter to win this amazing experience and be at The Vodacom Durban July!
