Following closely on the incredible success of the UWC-student-produced Awear SA fashion show – #RootedInFashion – students from the University of Cape Town (UCT), will show South Africa what it is to be part of #SAKotini on 22nd September 2018, when they take to the stage with their own version of Wear SA.

As part of the Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers Union’s (SACTWU) campaign to bring South African made fashion to the youth, the Wear SA Movement has been conducting pilot workshops aimed at unlocking the entrepreneurial spirit in tomorrow’s purchasing generation.  Through the producing of a fashion show – from start to finish – the students learn all about self-belief, pulling together as a team and the skills to overcome whatever obstacles are thrown at them.  The practical lessons will prove invaluable on their life’s journey.  Comments received from the UWC students attest to the whole experience being positively life-changing and the UCT and CPUT cohort expect nothing less, (CPUT is collaborating with UCT on this event).

The #SAKotini moniker created by the students, speaks to their desire to support the local clothing and textile industry.  Based on a popular tune, they hope to spread a message across the campus (and beyond), that the fruit of labour needs to be retained in the local economy.
