Shabby Chic Theme

In an effort to bring history alive, Concours d’ Elegance Durban has encouraged visitors to dress in their finest ensembles in celebration of a timeless era highlighting the 2019 Shabby Chic theme.

“It’s all about chic vintage style, lace, pearls, waistcoats and barrettes – clothing that imitates the style of a previous era.

“We wanted visitors to take in the nostalgia and enjoy this vintage experience of fine wheels, superb fashion and fabulous food in a backdrop of class and sophistication at a Top 100 Golf Course in the World, while sipping on a fine glass of bubbly,” adds Aritho.
