With menswear moving from out of the shadow of ladies wear, South Africa Fashion Week has realized the necessity of a menswear designer competition to support emerging menswear labels in their breakthrough into the fashion industry’s competitive market.
Delivering world class sophistication, the winner of the Scouting Menswear will receive mentorship and business support valued at R100 000 (over $7,000), which includes:
- Showcasing their Spring/Summer 2019 collection at SA Fashion Week [SAFW] in April 2019 and their Autumn/Winter 2020 collection at SAFW in October 2019.
- A stand at the SAFW Designer Pop Up Shop in August 2019 (budget dependent).
Media exposure in GQ South Africa.
- An all-expenses paid trip to Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence, Italy, in June 2019.
“MINI has always been a brand for people who dare to do things differently, to stand out”– Thiloshini Moodally, Head of MINI South Africa.
For the second time, SAFW brings to you MINI Scouting Menswear in Association with GQ Magazine 2019, an opportunity for menswear designers to launch their brands and take their careers to the next level.
