Fashion Business Development

Our fashion business development programmes help aspiring creative entrepreneurs, living in South Africa, access knowledge and opportunities in a safe, guided and intensely positive atmosphere for a fraction of the cost of traditional industry courses.

We teach the skills that most formal qualifications are missing entirely, which is why anyone can come to us, even if you don’t have a matric certificate. If you’re passionate about growing a brand, and you know you want to be involved with fashion, this is the solution you’ve been searching for.

Our programme helps you move one step closer to your business goals, from no matter where you are currently positioned.

"Working with the CAFB team was a fantastic experience: they are a very "hands-on" group of people working very hard to ensure each designer's show is unique and successful.
Being with the CAFB team certainly helped my career a lot! You gain very valuable contacts who are always willing to help you out and supporting you in each and every project you do. Also, being a part of an organisation bigger than yourself is a huge bonus as people will start to notice you. The team have also been very helpful even after the show, always prepared to be there with guidance, help and love!"

- Hugo Amos Swanepoel, Founder of AMOS
