From the Series
Each year, Design Indaba goes on the hunt for South Africa’s top design talent through its curated selection of Emerging Creatives, who are featured at the annual Design Indaba Expo. With a record number of applications for 2015, the curators had the near-impossible task of narrowing 262 applications to just 40 successful candidates.
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 at Design Indaba Expo 2015. See the full list of names here.
Here is a taste of what to expect from the fashion designers among the 2015 Emerging Creatives. The diverse aesthetic approaches of these three designers – Rich Mnisi, Kiara Gounder and Lukhanyo Mding – present a window onto the rich mix of influences at play in our local context.
