outh Africa’s leading hotel group’s long-standing support of the fashion industry is well known. In June this year, Southern Sun stepped up its commitment to the local industry by staging its own swimwear show at the Arise Africa Fashion Week. According to Southern Sun’s managing director Graham Wood, creations from the likes of Craig Port, Dax Martin Swimwear, LoveWaterLove and Tracy B, ‘reﬂect Southern Sun’s association with style and vibrancy’. The event is also aligned with Southern Sun’s dedication to entrepreneurship, job creation and economic development. As Wood says, ‘This is also a platform to create awareness, foster investment and build businesses’. If you missed the show this year, diarise it for 2010, as Southern Sun is making it an annual event.
