The friendly city is abuzz with lifestyle and entertainment activities for vibrant personalities to indulge. Sundays, henceforth, will not be the same with the introduction of a fashion event which aims takes over the last Sunday of each month.
The Amarula Bay Fashion Sunday had its first installment on the 26th of March and is said to have been a major success, with an attendance of about 100 people. The show was launched by the team which executed Nelson Mandela Bay Fashion Week last year.
