Venturing to a top university in London and being able to observe one of the leading fashion shows in the world, is a dream for inspiring designers.

This is also the motivation behind the hard work of third-year Fashion Design students who are entering the Woolworths/Kingston University design competition. The competition forms part of the Making a Difference through Design programme.

The winners are given the opportunity to visit the Kingston University in London and attend London Fashion Week. Last year several CPUT students clinched the prize and this year students hope to do the same.

This year’s competition brief calls on students to design an item for its Spring 2013 collection that is based on the theme of drapery.

“The brief is a bit challenging for some, but as designers we get to push our boundaries and comfort zones,” says third-year Fashion Design student Michael Venter.

The young designers each draw inspiration from their own cultures or ones that inspire them and design unique pieces that reflect their vision.

“The design process is different for all of us. Some prefer to work the brief around their designs and vice versa. The important thing is to fulfill the brief and know the target market,” says Fashion Design student Lauren Cottle.
