A day filled with fashion, bubbly and of course, the races, is on the horizon. Fashion’s most stylish and lovers of luxury, brace yourselves for another edition of Africa’s bougiest race day, The Sun Met.

Taking place at the Kenilworth Racecourse, Cape Town, on the 1st of February, this year’s prestigious event sees the attendance of the likes of media mogul and businesswoman Bonang Matheba (who will be bringing the House of BNG MCC), as well as Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi, as the official faces of the event and our official style inspiration for the big day.

The Sun Met’s 2020 theme:

So now that you have all the details, let’s move onto more pressing matters, WTF do I wear? Well, let’s start with the theme which is African Luxury: Visionaries. That’s easy enough, right? We’re African and we love a bit of luxury. We’re talking: eclectic African design, vibrant colours, bold prints and luxe fabrics. Basically, the dress code is ‘look like an African goddess’.
Sun International has collaborated with a handful of local creatives such as photographer Trevor Stuurman, fashion designers Masa Mara, Imprint ZA and Palesa Mokubung, who will be bringing their own interpretation of the theme.
