JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, October 2017 – Mall of the South hosted a day of style and fun at their first Kids of the South fashion event that took place on the 30th of September 2017 in the Platinum Court.
Shoppers and tenants were captivated by the adorable little finalists who showed off their funky moves on the ramp and showcased a variety of fashionable attire from participating tenants. The sassy emcee Stacey Norman entertained the audience with her razor sharp wit and humour; and not forgetting the dynamic sounds of FEVER, who enticed the crowd into song and dance.
The celebrity judges who attended the event included: Nicci Hattingh (former model and Owner of Nikay’s Finishing School), Lesedi Hlatywayo (Miss United Continents South Africa 2017), Jacinda Louw-Schutte (model, emcee, presenter), Adele Watridge (Owner of Adele’s Manufacturing Jewellers), Wendy Van Zyl (Head of the ice cream category at Dairymaid), Dunay Nortje (former model and pageant queen and wife to the popular Kurt Darren), Anzelle Von Staden (Miss Million Dollar 2015, Eastgate Look of Fashion 2016 and is on the front cover of “Your Family” magazine, October edition) and Keagan Chapman (Calvin Klein Brand Manager for Watches and Jewellery).
Entries were open to girls between the ages of three and five; six and eight and nine to twelve years.
We are pleased to announce the Kids of the South 2017 winners are: Gia Jardim in the three to five age group category; Enkosi Ndlovu in the six to eight age group category; and Cammy Anderson in the nine to twelve age group category.
The Kids of the South fashion event had over R130 000 worth of prizes up for grabs for the finalists, judges and emcee.

This year, the national organisation raised a sensational R1.8 million!
Lucy Silva Fernandes (Coordinator) said, “Thank you so much, once again, for being such an amazing mall. We were sold out. We cannot thank you enough.”
Mall of the South Centre Management thanks all sponsors and event organisers for their participation and contribution at the Kids of the South fashion event 2017; without their dedication and support it wouldn’t have been as successful. We further thank all our tenants and shoppers for supporting Cupcakes of Hope.
