The ever-growing fashion industry sees many fashion enthusiast opting for international brands while neglecting their very own. 

This was realised by WEAR SA, and University of Western Cape (UWC) with the purpose to revolutionise the local fashion industry, by encouraging the youth to support local brands in order to make a fashion statement while promoting entrepreneurial possibilities.

This vision will be fulfilled through the “Awear SA fashion show,” which will be spearheaded by students who were trained during a 2-day boot-camp about event management, staging and matching budding designers with those who can stitch a dream together with the purpose of unlocking their entrepreneur skills. 

The students do not only hail from the Fashion industry but were selected from different study fields and are inexperienced but have the potential of discovering tomorrow's hottest fashion labels.

Inspired by President Cyril Ramaphosa’s speech “Thuma mina,” these students are determined to promote this message to the SA youth.
