So last year I attended the Elle Rising Star Design Awards in association with MrP is presented by African Fashion International (AFI) and I am so excited that it will once again be taking place this year.
ELLE and MrP have once again joined forces to offer an amazing opportunity for young, talented and aspiring fashion designers to Kick-start a career in fashion and the opportunity to work in collaboration with Mr Price to launch their own fashion label. The competition seeks to find a designer who understands the aesthetic but also the commerce of contemporary fashion and has the necessary ambition to grow a successful fashion brand.
This year the ELLE Rising Star Design Award in association with MrP is presented by African Fashion International (AFI) and the finalists will show their designs at the prestigious Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2014 where the winner will be announced. For the first time, designers from across Africa were invited to enter. As in previous years, the panel of judges had a difficult task when it came to selecting the seven finalists.
