JOHANNESBURG – The Hospice Association of the Witwatersrand wrapped up 2018 SA Fashion Week in charitable style with a night with the stars in Sandton City.

When fashion collaborates with goodwill it creates a design interwoven with purpose that goes beyond style.

This year’s HospiceWIts Night with the stars, produced by Jan Malan, brought creations by Gert-Johan Coetzee, Clive Rundle, Puma, Black Coffee, Poetry, Adidas, JJ Schoeman and many more.

The initiative behind this event is to raise funds that will go towards home-based and in-patient Hospice care patients who face life-limiting illnesses.

The garments are distributed to 11 HospiceWits Shops,  where a variety of donated goods are sold, through fundraising via generous donations from corporates and individuals, and through holding a number of events throughout the year.
