We are pleased to announce that one of our alumni, Kim Gush, has walked away with one of the top spots at the AFI Foschini Fastrack event at this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Johannesburg . Her trend forward menswear collection showed hints of a “post-apocalyptic-ninja” style. As one of four winners, Kim receives a cash prize and a coveted place on an internship programme with a leading South African fashion retailer, Foschini. The winners have a chance to develop and present their capsule collections on the runway in front of local fashion audiences. Be sure to keep an eye on what Kim has to offer us at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town in August.
This is the second year in a row that a student of our Elizabeth Galloway alumni has won this prestigious award. Last year Mia Kriek and Chelsey Wilson represented Elizabeth Galloway in this competition. Congratulations Kim, we are so proud of you!
It was great to see David Tlale wearing one of Kim Gush’s jackets to the opening of his show at MBFWJ. David had this to say about Kim, “The future and direction of SA fashion is in her hands. She’s alive with fresh ideas and has an amazing point of view! Love!”.
