Olwethu Cele Is Making Moves As One Of The Faces of Durban Fashion Fair 2016


Olwethu Cele from Ice Model Management Durban is one of the faces of the Durban Fashion Fair 2016 ad campaign. He is an example of how an opportunity (he won the new face category at the DFF 2015 recognition awards) can build a career and create a role model for a whole community.

Although he is currently based in Durban, Cele comes from the small village of KwaNikhwe, which is close to Bizana near Port Edward. As the first model to come from this small town, he is looked up to by many of the younger members of the community.

Within a very short space of time, he has worked with a number of trend setting designers and fashion brands including House of Saint Luke by Mxolisi, Duke, Hombre’ by Vanessa Pillay, Terrence Bray and Palse. He has also showcased for Shaldon Kopman and African designer, Clement Effanga and has done shoots for The Hub and a number of stores in Botswana.
