Are you a Rising Star of African fashion?

“The search for fashion’s next Rising Star is on! And the reward is the opportunity of a lifetime for a young designer seeking to make a mark in the fashion world in Africa and internationally,” says ELLE South Africa publisher Gisèle Wertheim Aymés.

If you are Africa’s most talented young fashion designer, ELLE, Mr Price and Africa Fashion International (AFI) will help you kick-start your career! All finalists for the 2015 ELLE Rising Star Design Award in association with MRP will have the opportunity to work in collaboration with MRP to launch their own range. They will also benefit from a mentoring programme, including business coaching with a reputable institution and receive exposure in ELLE Magazine which will assist them in the competitive world of fashion design. The sky’s the limit for the designer chosen as this year’s Rising Star.

To help the rising stars, MRP will contribute R10 000 to each of the eight finalists towards development of their ranges to be shown on 7 November at the 2015 ELLE Rising Star Design Award during AFI’s prestigious Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Johannesburg. These ranges will also be showcased in an ELLE SA fashion story, giving the finalists even greater opportunity to be talent-spotted.

“The bar was set high with our one of our first-ever Rising Star winner, David Tlale, who went on to take events such as New York Fashion Week by storm, says Wertheim Aymés. We welcome entries from all over the continent and look forward to a wide variety of fashion visions from young designers with talent and determination, who feel the pulse of Africa pounding in their veins.”

Entries are open until 31 July 2015 and the eight finalists will be named on 7 August 2015. The winner of the 2015 ELLE Rising Star Design Award in association with MRP will be announced on 7 November 2015 at the prestigious Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Johannesburg.
