It's Elle New Talent time
Tuesday, June 15, 2010
Throughout the development of the South African industry - despite the boat jumping, back stabbing and diva throne grabbing - the Elle New Talent competition has been the most consistent and one of the only legitimate (streetcred wise) selection and award show for new or young designers in South Africa. Past winners include David Tlale, Tiaan Nagel and Anisa Mpungwe - three formidable forces I might add and I can't wait to be part of the selection and judging process this year (huge honour). The only reason I stole this graphic and scanned image from the M.R Preee-say blog is solely because I have something to do with the competition this year. I hope Amber and Jo or whoever designed it doesn't mind.
So the coolest fashion mag and the coolest retailer are looking for new talent - get to it if you think you've got what it takes. Actually for an 18 June closing date, you should be on your way by now. Good Luck. See you from the other side of the Judges Table!
