2010 Graduate lands dream
Fashion Graduate’s are some still adapting to their new and
careers. Still young and full of
energy they are ideal for employing in businesses where they get as much
exposure as possible to various things in order for them to build up an
idea of what they would like to do at some stage later in life. And
it comes as no surprise when Sandotn based Busby
employed Ofelia “Fifi” Andrade as their administrator
Busby is a wholesale and retail group in South Africa,
employing more than 1550 people nationwide, Busby distributes extensive
ranges of clothing, luggage, handbags accessories and eyewear. All bearing
International Brand Names, house brands and private labels..
What makes this
employment so special is that Ofelia will take on responsibilities such as
handling samples and new designs from companies such as Guess, Nine West,
Claire's, Forever New, and Mango, to name a few. Busby is also
very well known for their corporate structures that allows for its
employees to grow within the business. Ofelia, we are very proud of you and
wish you all the luck for the future.
NWSD trio represents at Vodacom Durban July
The annual Vodacom Durban July is a benchmark of glits
and glamour on the South African social calendar. And each year
the numbers of star studded celebrities increase with designs by up and
coming and some already established designers. 2011 is no
different as the NWSD has three of our students present at the semi finals
judging for this glamorous event. Stiena Hoffmann, Ilze
Delport, and Melanie Grobler were among the numbers of competitor designers
on 26 May in Bloemfontein
It’s a proud moment for the lecturers and students
of the NWSD as we can proudly say we have got the utmost confidence for all
three of our candidates and hope all the best for them.
Vintage Fashion Show @ Rio Casino Resort
As we all know
fashion always ends up in a full circle. What was Fashionable a few decades
ago is sure to be fashionable again at some stage or another. With that
being said we have found a very appropriate manner to bring tribute to the
fashion of yesteryear.
On the 2'nd of July 2011 we will be
hosting a Vintage Fashion Show at the Rio Casino Resort in Klerksdorp. It
promises to be an unforgettable event showcasing the talents of our
students. We are planning to dust of Gran's Dresses and add a little
modern flavour, jazz it up and showing you what weve got. It is not
only exciting for us as the North West School of Design but a perfect
opportunity for our students to broaden their horizons and work with
textures and styles unknown to them. Keep an eye on our Facebook page
for regular updates and more info.

Custom will reconcile people to any atrocity; and fashion will drive
them to acquire any custom.
About half my designs are controlled fan'tasy, 15 percent are total
madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs. Manolo
