The winner of the 2020 Allfashion Sourcing Young Designer Competition has officially been announced and the winner is Sinazo Janda.
“This means so much. To be recognized by people I have been following for so long. I am so grateful for everyone’s contribution towards this industry. It’s difficult to have a breakthrough and this will be so helpful in my career. I am going to use the cash to pay off my student’s loans from last year and start my own branded label.”
The talented young designer will receive an all expenses paid trip to participate at Texworld in Paris early next year around February, or later on depending on the travel restrictions. Additionally, Janda will also receive a cash prize of R15 000. Commenting on the competition is Allfashion Sourcing Show Director, Kathryn Frew saying:
“Almost four years ago, we came up with the idea for this competition to showcase the design skills that the youth have in this country. This year’s entries are the best that we have seen so far. These young designers have gone through so much this year and to have managed to continue with the competition this year and to still have had the opportunity to have them working with models and seeing their designs come to life has created a very special virtual edition of the Allfashion sourcing business-oriented marketplace.”
