And for those who do not know LISOF – it is a fashion school situated in South Africa that has gained the reputation of being the most progressive fashion school in the African continent. And offers both full time and part time courses, with some courses being available beyound their south african boarders.
LISOF’s stand at the SAFW Pop Up Shop held recently at Sandton City Fountain Court (31 August – 2 September) proved to be a hit with fahionistahs, aspiring and established.
Entrants were required to style a full scale female form using only what was made available to them on the stand. Entrants were photographed with their design and posted to LISOF’s Facebook page, where public votes determined the five finalists. The finalists were required to complete a task prior to the final adjudication of the winner.
Bridget Modjadji proved to be a cut above the other finalists distinguishing herself through strong conceptual and creative skills coupled with a clearly articulated point of view. Rosenthal says: ‘Bridget understands very clearly that success comes with commitment and hard work. Her determination to complete her first undergraduate journey speaks volumes about the character of the person. We are delighted to extend the offer of a one-year bursary to study at LISOF to Bridget in this exciting and challenging career pathway.’
Bridget will receive the award at LISOF’s annual fashion show to be held at the Atlas Studios.
