Cape Wools and Mohair SA has announced that they will form a collaboration on the next edition of the SA Fashion Week and Cape Wools Designer Challenge to become the Cape Wools and Mohair SA Designer Challenge.
“We are thrilled to announce that “De Mil” has been selected by an international panel of judges as the menswear designer, and “LUNAR” as the ladieswear designer.
We are delighted to have these designers on board and to experience the wonderful attributes of these two beautiful natural fibres.”
The designers will get the opportunity to travel to the Eastern Cape and experience the on-farm activities of a wool and mohair farm. This will help them source some yarns and fabrics from local suppliers within the two industries.
The plan is to have the designs showcased at the Autumn/Winter edition of SA Fashion Week in October 2019. This will give the winning designers an opportunity to attend the Making it in Textiles Conference in the UK later this year. This once will give them a chance to gain in-depth knowledge of the British and Globe textile sector
“We saw the coming together of two such beautiful natural fibers as the perfect opportunity to enhance the footprint of South African Wool and Mohair Industries.”
