Three Cape Town student designs were chosen to participate in the national finals of the Vodacom Durban July Young Designer Award. Twenty students from Cape Town were originally chosen as regional finalists and two of our talented Third Year students were among them.
The theme this year was "Its a Blooming Great Day" and saw students getting creative with everything flower themed-from daffodil inspired silhouettes to garments made of hundreds of little handmade flowers.
Original Design, construction and translation from storyboard to actual garment were all judged by Malcolm Kluk, Christiaan Gabriel du Toit, David Tlale and Terrence Bray before a final choice was made.
Well done to Courtney Carroll who was one of the Top 10 Cape Town Finalists
Congratulations to Jessica Newton who made it into the Top 10 National Finals to be held in Durban mid July.
