Now in its fourth year, the Young Designer Competition offers young designers an opportunity to showcase their skillset through their interpretation of a predetermined design brief.

This year’s brief was put together by Cyril Naicker - Chief Executive of Imprint Luxury in conjunction with allfashion sourcing and the Cape Town Fashion Council and is built on the concept of Slow Fashion with emphasis on craftsmanship, quality and functionality linked to a more sustainable future.

The competition features prizes valued more than R80 000,00 with the main prize being an all-expenses paid opportunity to participate at Texworld Paris in 2022.
