Emerging designers share their fashion stories

Sandile Duke Mngadi, Tiffany Prior, Sindi Shangase, Zama Mathe and Greg Wallis judge the entries.

AFTER the recent call for all local emerging designers to submit a storyboard for the opportunity to participate in the 2018 Durban Fashion Fair, the eThekwini Municipality’s Business Support, Tourism and Markets Unit (BSTMU) office was inundated with hundreds of entries.

Each year, hundreds try out but only 10 can be selected to participate after the judges have narrowed down the entries and conducted interviews with the hopefuls where the inspiration behind the storyboards they have submitted, is discussed.

Sindi Shangase, the BSTMU Programme Manager who has spearheaded the Durban Fashion Fair for the past seven years said: “ It was a difficult task for our judges to narrow down the field as the standard and creativity behind these young designers gets more exciting as each year passes, and we want to ensure that with the correct selection of the participating young designers, the Durban Fashion Fair itself is anticipated to be bigger and better.”

The judging panel included were Sandile Duke Mngadi (Duke – “Clothe Your Soul”), Tiffany Prior (Ice Models), Sindi Shangase (BSTMU), Zama Mathe (Zarth) and Greg Wallis (founder of G&D Apparel).
