The SA Style Awards, founded and coordinated by publicist Jillian Grogor, has become one of the most prestigious occasions on our fashion and social calendar. It is dedicated to finding South Africa's fashion makers and trendsetters who bear this label ‘stylish’ with such unmistakable panache and good taste. Over the years we have showcased the glamour, success and unmistakable sense of style of some of SA’s most stylish personalities.

Jill Grogor says “being stylish is having an innate sense of style in every aspect of your life, your lifestyle, the way you clothe both yourself and your surroundings, the way in which you conduct your career, the destinations you travel to, what you drive, where you dine and what you sip on. Our winners each year are chosen because they have made a mark in their respective fields in South Africa.”
