Fashion is a major part of the human psyche.

On the 2nd of November I attended the Cape Town Fashion Council’s  AGM. I always find it hard to tell on the surface what the Cape Town fashion industry is like. However this meeting gave me a great insight into exactly what is going on in the  Industry.

This year the Cape town fashion council has grown vast amounts with a Facebook fanbase of 1649 people. And 769 members of the CTFC.  Breaking that down

256 designers

154 industry members

352 students

19 members of the mesia

15 educational institutes.

It was very exciting to hear what the CTFC has in store fore us in 2012 and even 2013. You can look forward to the official launch of WOZA (wear only South Africa), a bigger and better fashion presence at the Design Indaba, and also a new market happening in the Eastern City district around Harrington street in the first or second week of Dec.
