2020 Application for the R 170 000.00 Fashion Design bursary is now open.

Celebrity fashion designer Gert-Johan Coetzee plans to grow the South African fashion industry through the Gert-Johan Coetzee bursary programme.

“Every year we try to do something for the country of fashion, and I believe the youth of our country is our most important asset.  We have to mould and sculpt the youth into the future leaders of tomorrow.  We have a bursary programme that has been running of the past seven years to great success.”

The North West School of Design Fashion Design course worth over R 170 000.00 provides a broad
spectrum of knowledge that provides graduates with extensive knowledge in fashion illustration,
apparel construction, pattern drafting and manipulation and computer aided design, as well as
fashion retail.

Gert-Johan Coetzee believes to give back to the community, and his two annual bursaries, one for Fashion Design and Fashion Communication, at his alma-mater, North West School of Design will grant two talented individuals to pursue their dreams in fashion also.

The bursary is valued at over R 170 000.00, and it includes tuition for three years, as well as a sewing machine and overlocker as sponsorship from Bernina SA. Acer Africa came on board sponsoring the winner with an Aspire A13-51 i5 Laptop for the use of their 3-year course.
