CFAD Annual Graduation Dinner Incorporating Fashion Show & TLTL Awards 2016

Centre for Fine Art, Animation and Design

Old Durban Airport – Fri 28 October 2016, from 5.30pm

Durban’s most innovative art school, CFAD (Centre for Fine Art Animation and Design) will hold their annual Graduation Dinner, Fashion Extravaganza and TLTL Awards Ceremony at the Old Durban Airport on Friday 28 October starting at 5.30pm for 6pm.

The coveted event – which has been running for more than a decade – will see three significant events rolled into one fabulous evening: their annual graduation dinner which acknowledges the centre’s graduates: a fun and fabulous fashion extravaganza created by and hosted by CFAD students, and the Too Little Too Late Awards Ceremony.


A sit-down banquet in the atmospheric old airport provides the backdrop for the Centre for Fine Art Animation and Design’s most important annual event.


A highlight of the evening is the tertiary institution’s acknowledgment of unsung heroes instrumental in weaving the complex fabric of our community. “The TLTL – Too Little Too Late – Awards are given annually to individuals who contribute unselfishly to the community without the recognition they deserve. It is through their work people were able to break the silence,” said CFAD founder Dr Nanda Soobben.


The formality of the institution’s graduation and awards ceremony is a counterpoint to the fun, fantastical and frivolous organic fashions created by undergrad design students that address the challenges of waste with a focus on recycling. The theme this year is Superheroes and Villains!


“Started in 2000, this fashion design project is an opportunity to stretch the creativity of the graphic design students and to explore a unique solution to the age-old problem of pollution,” says CFAD staffer Tamlyn Martin.


The Centre for Fine Art, Animation and Design (CFAD) is a tertiary institution that offers training in fine art, animation (2D and 3D) and graphic design.


CFAD operates from Smart Exchange in the heart of the City. The CFAD was established in 1994 by world-renowned cartoonist, illustrator and journalist Dr Nanda Soobben.
