It was an evening of fashion and style as the My Top Billing Dream‘ Fashion Show took place at Canal Walk, Cape Town last night. SABC3¬†Top Billing presenters, Jeannie D, Jo-Ann Strauss and Lorna Maseko introduced the top eight finalists as the glamorous fashion show got underway, showcasing some of Canal Walk Shopping Mall‘s top clothing stores’ trends. The show drew an amazing crowd of ‘My Top Billing Dream’ fans as the finalists took part in the fashion show to the smooth sounds of Cape Town based band, GoodLuck. The perfect opportunity to talk directly to their fans, all the contestants remained poised and elegant through out the show, proving once more that they deserve their place in the top eight.

Fans were also treated to special performances by opera singer, Lynelle Kenned, a surprise gumboot dance by Greg Kriek (featuring the kids from the Happy Feet Youth Project) and a few perfectly excited links by all the contestants.

I had a chance to chat with the contestants after the fashion show and it was clear that each of them have their place in the top eight. A genuine sense of passion, drive and enthusiasm exuded from each of the contests. Jonathan Boynton-Lee, Lynelle Kenned ,Greg Kriek, Zama Ngcobo, Khanya Ngumbela, Chamendran Naidoo, Lauren Wallett captivated the audience and there is no double that the next few weeks will be filled with challenges, but each of them certainly rose to this cat-walk challenge.
