After the recent call for all local designers to submit a storyboard for the opportunity to participate in the 2019 Durban Fashion Fair mentorship programme , the eThekwini Municipality’s Business Support, Tourism and Markets Unit office were inundated with 100’s of entries.

Each year, hundreds try out, but only 20 will  be selected to participate in the annual 10 month programme after the judges have narrowed down the entries and conducted interviews with the hopefuls relating to the creativeness behind the storyboards submitted, is then discussed.

According to Sindi Shangase, the Programme Manager for the Business Support Tourism and Markets Unit who has driven the DFF since inception in 2011, the mentorship programme is intended to train enterprising young designers in all aspects of the fashion business and prepare them and their collections for the DFF which takes place later this year at the ICC.

The judging panel going through the storyboards received were Sindi Shangase (BSTMU) and Greg Wallis (Founder of G&D Apparel) on who the next 2019 Durban Fashion Fair mentors will be….watch the press for details to find out who!
