ELLE’s 2013 Rising Star Finalists








































You have read all about the ELLE magazine South Africa Rising Star in partnership with Mr Price. These are the eight finalists who have made it to the next round of the intensive competition. Based on the judging criteria one of them will be a rising star and the rest will be back to their sketchbooks. Not so rising.

It is all and well they managed to WOW the judges with the tales of their inspiration and sketches. Now they will have to give their collection life, make it walk and make it sell. It will need to be sell-able, appeal to a certain target market but most of all, the designers have to know the business of fashion (business plan, funding e.t.c) and everything in between. This is what this competition is about. Although it says ‘Rising Star’ do not be fooled by the name. To be part of it and make it this far there must be something amazing about your actual design skill and be in possession of some fierce business acumen!
