BlackBerry supports SA style

BlackBerry supported South African design students with a competition to dress the promoters at this year’s Vodacom Durban July horse racing day.

BlackBerry dressed its promoters at the event in the most stylish creations from students at the Style Design College at the Kwa-Zulu Natal University this year.

BlackBerry promoters appeared in the four winning designs from the BlackBerry Designer Awards run with the Style Design College. Students were briefed to design their outfits according to the Durban July theme which was: “A material world:  love Red, think green! Your earth friendly ensemble, will steal the scene.”

All outfits were made from natural fabrics and materials such as raw silk, feathers, suiting and beading.

The overall winners were:

  • First place: Divan Brits
  • Second place: Shared by Chloe Kippen and Romy Altenburger
  • Third Place: Martin Aiyuk

Each of these designers received a BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone, a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and accessories.

The special award winner, Karra Brodowicz, received a BlackBerry Bold 9900, a BlackBerry PlayBook, accessories and a shopping voucher.
