Each year, Design Indaba goes on the hunt for South Africa’s top design talent. And year-on-year, we unearth the next wave of talent who go on to soaring heights and successful careers. And this year is no different.
With a record number of applications this year, our curators had the near-impossible task of narrowing down nearly 270 applications to just 40 successful candidates.
We were blown away by the talent and innovation of South Africa’s young creatives. From 3D fashion printing and community art projects to children’s books and contemporary sewing patterns, the class of 2015 shows an exciting and forward-thinking mix of young designers.
These creatives will be showcasing their most innovative work, as well as offering products for sale. Don’t miss the chance to pick up something from South Africa’s future design stars.
