It is not only about winning the prize. Competitions play a key role in motivating students to develop their ideas and skills.
It gives them a chance to gain substantial experience and the opportunity to analyse and evaluate the outcomes and uncover personal aptitude.
With the SAFW Student Competition we call upon the students from 32 fashion institutions it is an entry point, the first contact that designers have with the media, consumers and buyers. Spotlighting the designers at such an early stage of their career gives SAFW the opportunity to nurture the talent we have, making sure that they stay connected.
