An untamed evening in the winelands celebrating our 2nd year students. Earlier this year the academy participated in an initiative hosted by  KWV and Thirsty Scarecrow to produce garments inspired by KWV’s Wild Africa Cream product. Our 2nd year students were invited to design a look consisting out of a coat and undergarment (dress, top and bottom) under the theme “Untamed Elegance”.

Students planned hair and make-up to complete their runway looks. Thank you to our favourite partners Stellenbosch Hair Academy and Isa Carstens Academy for providing your services and helping our students complete their visions.

The show was held at Thirsty Scarecrow overlooking the beautiful strawberry farm it is located on. 

Students spent the afternoon prior to the fashion show presenting their creations to a panel of judges. Thank you to our special guest judges who joined us. 

Our wonderful judging panel:

Nicole Wilmans – EG Alumni

Evert Erasmus – Designer / Owner of Ma se Kinders & Evert J Erasmus Collections

Daniella Mugno – Brand manager: Wild Africa Cream

It’s show time!  Here are some looks on the runway:

To end off the evening 3 finalists were announced. First place awarded to Jessica Matthysen, second place to Raabi’ah Adonis and third place to Donna Kotzé.

Well done to each and everyone of the participating students! Thank you to everyone involved 🐾
