LUFTHANSA 1st CLASS COLLECTIONS
 
 
Established in 2013, SAFW saw the need to identify the most important designers of the future in order to nurture and support them, giving them the opportunity to marketing their labels, which were still in their infancy economically.

 

The Lufthansa 1st Class Collections is only open to fashion designers who have been in business for less than 10 years. They are outstanding achievers in the early stages of their careers and have shown promise and dedication in establishing and growing their own sustainable fashion business that can have a future impact on the GDP of South Africa.

 

With a judging panel lead by The Fashion Agent’s, Annette Pringle, the Lufthansa 1st Class Collections celebrated outstanding fashion talent in South Africa.

 

The prize includes a return flight courtesy of Lufthansa German Airlines to attend Berlin Fashion Week as part of a SAFW travel seminar.
