I had the lovely opportunity to attend the National Choir Festival in Durban this passed Saturday (30/08/2014). I surprisingly had such an amazing time! Okaaaay, okaaaaay confession!
There was a point where I felt a tad bit sleepy, but that could be because it was the whole day’s affair. We arrived at about 11am and the show came to a complete end at 17:00pm. Okay, so the background story is that we were invited as the Chonco family because my uncle (my father’s brother), his song was the prescribed song. I enjoyed the music so much, and I also found it so interesting to observe a visible difference between the classical and the light music/ cecular genre trends.
Of course I have to talk about the fashion up in this! Generally I was disappointed, to the point of discomfort, at the fabrication and the actual way the garments were made. Althooooough, there were a few (like maybe 2 or 3) designs that were a very good design idea and choice! You will see them in the attached pictures (two really, camera problems, one of the better one and the other the not-so-better one). I strongly feel as though music shouldn’t be the absolute death of fashion! Thorough classical research must be done, and better more beautiful fabrics to be used. Here’s to fashionable change!
