 AFI FASTRACK™ 2015 APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN
APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON 15 JANUARY 2015
AFI FASTRACK™ is a young designer incubation initiative, founded in 2011 by
African Fashion International (AFI). The programme aims to develop the new
generation of fashion design talent.
The goal of AFI FASTRACK™ is to help graduate designers heighten their
creative thinking and tighten their aesthetics & points of view; the mission is also
to guide these designers in bridging the gap between the creative and the
commercial side of the fashion industry, becoming a catalyst for sustainable
fashion businesses.
PHASE O NE

Design graduates from across South Africa, submit an application to be part of

The semi-finalists showcase their capsule collections at Mercedes-Benz Fashion
Week Joburg, in March 2015, at the organiser’s cost.
Between 3 and 6 finalists are selected to go to the next round (Phase Two) and
are given an initial cash prize.
Phase Two consists of work placement and experience opportunities,
mentorship and training and finalists will need to be available for this phase of
the programme from April – August 2015.
Phase Three allows the finalists to showcase a final capsule collection, to
national media, buyers and industry professionals – a winner will be selected and
named the AFI Young Designer of the Year 2015, with a further cash prize.
