Jumbo Project Run-a-way

The Eastern Cape based retail store, Jumbo, hosted a design competion on Facebook - Project Run-a-way. The brief was plain & simple: design a casual/leisure wear outfit.

Hanlie Janse van Rensburg (1st year BA Fashion Design student) submitted her entry & encouraged by friends & family who voted for her designs. The judges (including the CEO, head of buying and an external qualified designer) chose her design considering creative originality, technical application and commerciality as well as public popularity, as the winning entry.

The design is now in consideration for Jumbo's Summer 2013 strategy which takes place early next year. Congratulations Hanli!
