CAFB Fashion Designer 'Bursary'
If you've subscribed to our Wing Column, you'll know by now that we're going all out to promote South African talent. We'll be giving away one free 12-month membership to an aspiring Fashion Designer.
We'd especially love to hear from Fashion Design students who have not had a chance to complete formal qualifications. We know you've got the talent, passion and vision and we want to help you reach your goals.
Must be South African citizens
Must be between the ages of 16 and 35 years old
Must have basic knowledge of fashion design (fabric types and purposes, pattern-making, colour co-ordination, stitching types and purposes)
Must be able to design and produce garments from scratch for a live fashion show on 11 November 2017
Must be able and willing to design garments for both ladies and gents
Must display a strong moral fibre and sense of integrity
If you're still unsure how our programme normally functions, here's a quick refresher:
Fashion Designers register with CAFB for a period of 12-months and pay a once-off registration fee. (The cost will remain R500pp until 1 August 2017 when the new price of R750pp takes effect)
Registered Fashion Designers will receive a digital induction pack, along with exclusive CAFB merchandise
Registered Fashion Designers will automatically be included at events such as photo shoots, live fashion events and more
Models, stylists and photography services will be provided
Digital marketing services will be provided
Registered Fashion Designers may sell garments through the CAFB's online store, subject to terms and conditions.
If you're looking for reassurance before spending your moola, you're welcome to contact us about a taste-test as we like to call it. Feel free to sign up for one event before jumping into the 12-month commitment. You can also check out our testimonials and hear what our Angels have to say about working with us.
This could be the opportunity of a lifetime for you or a loved one, and nothing is worth letting this pass. The actual value of our programme exceeds R10 000, and since our very first event in 2012, we've kept our promise to make success an affordable reality for our Angels. Share this post on any platform you can and help us find the next fashion mogul of South Africa.
