The SOUTH AFRICAN-NATIONAL FASHION CONFERENCE (SA-NFC) would like to introduce ourselves to you, The SA-NFC was founded as a communication mouth-piece to bridge and balance the unbalanced fashion industry in South Africa through business to business communication.
The conference will be addressing the business side of fashion in South Africa, and incorporating the fundamentals of the DTI’s Codes of Good Practice on Broad Based BEE (BBBEE) in fashion. A host of our South African designers come from previously disadvantaged communities and have no clear knowledge of the availability of information that government in South Africa has aligned for young entrepreneurs and in this case South African fashion designers.
This conference is a first in South Africa that will give direct contact and information directed to fashion designers across the board. The SA-NFC is about addressing a number of agendas surrounding rural, township and well-established fashion designers in South Africa; designed to begin the process of bridging the gap of the PDI’s in South Africa Fashion and communicating with businesses and having them communicate with our industry through this conference.
The SA-NFC will be a hub of information, bringing for the first time in South Africa business leaders to skill and empower previously disadvantaged communities and fashion designers with knowledge and thus bringing them into mainstream (fashion) economy as with the dti’s codes of good practice conference on BB-BEE.
