More than 2 000 women have already pre-registered
for the event. Show director Projeni Pather, a mother of two, said:
"We wanted to add a new dimension to this year's show, and I
believe we have achieved that through including a historic event.
"Although it was initially quite a daunting
task, we have managed to get this world-record attempt sanctified
by Guinness World Records as an official world-record attempt and
we would love to set a high standard for other countries and cities
The show will move on to Durban and Cape
Town, where women will try to beat the record set in Johannesburg.
