The 2017 Durban Fashion Fair Mentorship Designers Announced


As part of the Fashion Development Programme which is proudly supported by eThekwini Municipality, the journey for 2017 kicked off with the showcasing of talented designer creations in the hope of securing a place on the catwalk during the fashion week, at the Durban Fashion Fair which takes place in August.

Recently, the Municipality put out a notice to invite designers to participate in the annual Fashion Mentorship Programme which teaches and guides designers all about the business of fashion and grooms them for the fashion week.

The standard each year gets higher and higher as each designer submits their proposal and creations motivating why they should be selected for this “once in a lifetime” programme.

The Business Support, Tourism and Markets Unit that manages this programme, received a number of applications from within the eThekwini Municipality area and was followed by an intensive interview process and much deliberation amongst the judges. In the end, only 20 students could be selected out of the number of talented designers who were interviewed.
