The Cannes Fashion Festival runs from 20-22 May 2015, coinciding with the highly acclaimed Cannes Film Festival, and kicks off its program with a VIP charity gala dinner on Wednesday 20thMay.

The T-shirts will be auctioned as part of the Cannes Fashion Festival gala dinner - a glamorous start to what is pegged as one of the most anticipated events of the year. The gala dinner is organised in conjunction with The Mandela International Film Festival. The MIFF was officially launched on the 3rd December 2014, at the Athenaeum Art Gallery in Port Elizabeth. As Patron of the festival, His Royal Highness Nkosi Zwelivelile Mandela, the grandson of Nelson Mandela, will be present at the gala and present the MIFF.

High profile guests attending the gala dinner can prepare themselves for a night to remember – following the red carpet arrival they will have front row seats for catwalk shows by the likes of Mikael D and STELLO (formerly MTCostello) and enjoy live performances from multi-platinum selling artist Lucenzo and award winning producer Boy Wonder.

With a guest list of respected politicians and personalities from the diplomatic world, as well as film industry representatives, fashion greats and A-list celebrities from across the globe, the Cannes Fashion Festival Gala on 20 May will be one of the most glamorous events of the year.
