Namibian Young Designer enters ReMix Competition!

Nikola Conradie, winner of the 2013 Namibian Young Designer Awards, will now go on to compete in the 2014 ReMix Awards held at the MiFur Expo in Milano.

An initiative of The Swakara Board, the Young & Established Designer Awards are held every second year to find the best young Namibian fashion designer to compete as Namibia's entry for the ReMix Awards.

There was also a category for the best Established Namibian Designer, this award went to Chakirra Claasen, who now has the opportunity to design a Swakara garment for local furrier Seelenbinder Furs of Windhoek.

Event organiser Liezl Louw of Beyond Design elaborates: "This competition also gives Namibian designers the opportunity to grow and promote themselves in Namibia. There are not always enough platforms to showcase Namibian designer talent and through this competition we source the best, to showcase their designs at the Swakara Fashion Show."
