FWB 2017 saw local designers; Grace Nobunga of Mg2 Square and Botswana Designer Kgomotso Gibe of Gibilicious participating in the Mr Price Group mentorship training programme in Durban RSA.
“Our objective with Fashion Without Borders is to create a gateway for aspiring designers and models to enter the world of fashion. Likewise, we are giving the broader public access to the amazing, and often unseen, talent of these designers through our fashion show and pop-up stalls,” says Serge Kabisoso, co-founder of Fashion Without Borders. “Essentially, it is a fashion and lifestyle movement that started in South Africa and is now travelling across the African continent to showcase and uplift Africa’s young and emerging fashion designers and upcoming models from disadvantaged backgrounds.”
FASHION HIVE (SUMMER/SPRING 2018)
Fashion Without Borders (FWB) will showcase how current fashion trends are predicted by moods, behavior, and buying habits of the consumer at a particular time. “We will also delve into how technologies, markets, and consumers are rapidly evolving from following traditional, static and demography-based criteria towards more dynamic, modern, lifestyle and psychographic influences,” he says.
The event will bring together 15 designers ranging from new talent to emerging and established names. These fashion designers will take center stage to display their interpretation of fashion design in Johannesburg and the rest of Africa, to raise awareness about local fashion consumption. “We have also introduced POP-UP STALLS which will run from October 4 – 7 at Park Inn,” says Kabisoso. “This inspiring day of creativity, ingenuity, and self-expression will be headlined amongst other established designers by the likes of Matome Seshoka of Antherline Couture and Ramoetse Tshabalala the creative director and designer of Joszy, who will display some of his latest collection. The stage will also be graced by International headliners like Kabaso Nkandu of the Zambian brand Nkanda Yatu and Thula Sindi of the brand Thula Sindi who will be part of the designers mentorship program”
