On the evening of the 24th of March 2022 Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion hosted a very special graduation ceremony to celebrate the graduates from both 2020 and 2021.

The momentous occasion was hosted at The Thirsty Scarecrow in Stellenbosch lending beautiful farm scenery to the graduates and their guests.

A very special guest, Mr. Cyril Naicker, addressed our graduates, staff and guests and sent everyone home motivated and inspired.

To quote Mr. Naicker:

“Be fully present:
As you navigate life from here, there will be moments you feel you need to rush as you need to get
to the next appointment. Consider the brevity of life and do everything you can to always be fully present. You never know the impact you will have by simply hearing and seeing someone. By really
listening and really seeing.

A poignant quote by Author and Brand Strategist Jay Danzie, and it has had a lasting impression on
me, and I would love to share this with you;
‘Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after an experience with you becomes your trademark’

From time to time you may stumble, you may fall, you may fail. There will be amazing highs and some lows. You will have questions and doubts about your path. Listen to that still small voice within yourself. You will be okay, you will be happy, you will be successful.”

We proudly graduated students on our Diploma in Fashion Design, Degree in Fashion Design and Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design. 

Thank you to Kim Van Zyl from Kim Van Zyl Photography for capturing our special evening.

Congratulations to all of our graduates! We look forward to seeing what you get up to.
