Wear SA roots for local designers

The ever-growing fashion industry sees many fashion enthusiasts opt for international brands and neglects their own.

This was realized by WEAR SA, and the University of Western Cape (UWC) with the aim of revolutionizing the local fashion industry by encouraging young people to support local brands to make a fashion statement and at the same time to promote business opportunities.

This vision will be fulfilled by the "Awear SA fashion show", which will be led by students who have been trained during a 2-day bootcamp about event management, and who will introduce and match beginning designers with those who can combine a dream with the goal of unlocking their entrepreneurial skills.

The students are not only from the fashion industry, but are selected from different study areas and are inexperienced, but have the potential to discover the most popular fashion labels of tomorrow.

Inspired by the speech "Thuma mina" by President Cyril Ramaphosa, these students are determined to promote this message to the SA youth.

The fashion show held on the UWC Campus on September 1 provides an exciting line-up of local fashion designers such as; CENZA, Mo-Cherry, CODE, FBI, Native Youth Couture, Kangai Jewelery, Accessories by Zeni, Anchors Accessories, Zenath Clothing, Northlink, The Modern Boesman and Cloths and accessories.
