  • Shoutout to the 2023 Young Designer Award winner, @lwandlezwezwe, who graduated from The School of Fashion PMB (2023) for representing the HDJ at last month’s SA Fashion Week where she got a front row seat for the latest trends and biggest names in SA Fashion.
 
The experience, courtesy of SA Fashion Week, was the culmination of the winner’s programme of the 2023 HDJ Young Designer Award presented by  @dbnfashion_fair - a programme which has given Lwands a huge boost to her career in fashion.
 
The 2024 YDA Competition kicks off soon with the first round of judging of student submissions on 4 June at Hollywoodbets Greyville.

We did a Q&A to get some insight from our shining star:

How has winning YD HDJ 2023 impacted your life so far? - 
In the greatest way, I find myself given opportunities I had never imagined for myself just because of the title itself! My fashion business has since bloomed beautifully and I’m just excited for the future!

What word of advice can you give this year’s YDs and their journey? - 
Be true to your designing journey and style, once you have chosen a concept put in the work needed. Consider colour, texture and fit! Do not forget to Execute neatly!

What were your best moments of SAFW? - 
Definitely the fashion showcased on the runway, the level of creativity and workmanship left me in awe!

Who was/is your favourite designer of SAFW and why? -
Bam Collective, I love how chic and elegant his style is, from the choice of fabrics to the beautiful silhouettes!

What are the fashion trends to look out for in 2024.- 
I’m seeing a lot of prints, ruffles and structured silhouettes
