Rocking the Daisies and GALXBOY partner to launch Festival Fashion Talent Search

Rocking the Daisies, in proud partnership with GALXBOY, is thrilled to announce the launch of the inaugural Festival Fashion Talent Search. This exciting initiative celebrates the vibrant subculture of festival fashion, inspired by one of South Africa’s most iconic music and lifestyle festivals, Rocking the Daisies.

“As a festival we have always been on the forefront of showcasing and celebrating African artists and DJ’s,” said Steyn Entertainment CEO, Dale De Ruig, “we look forward to expanding our platform to include fresh, innovative fashion designers to the 19th Edition of Rocking the Daisies.”

 

Express Your Festival Fabulous

Participants are encouraged to unleash their creativity with no limits on textiles, colours, and prints, aiming to express their most fabulous and fashionable festival selves. The theme for this year’s festival is ‘In The Stars’, challenging designers to incorporate celestial elements into at least one of their five looks in the capsule collection.

Showcase Your Talent

The top five designers selected through the competition will have the incredible opportunity to showcase their collections at Rocking the Daisies, in front of thousands of festival-goers. This platform promises to uplift and empower the next generation of designers in Mzansi, contributing to the rich tapestry of South African fashion.

 

Exciting Prizes and Opportunities

The winner of the Festival Fashion Talent Search will receive a cash prize of R20,000.00. Additionally, they will collaborate on designing the Official 20th anniversary Rocking the Daisies festival merchandise. Furthermore, the winner will secure a coveted internship opportunity with the GALXBOY team at their Head Office in Johannesburg, South Africa.

”Being part of Rocking The Daisies’ Festival Fashion Talent Search is a milestone for GALXBOY because we’ve always been inspired by youth culture and innovation expressed through creativity – and we’re here to inspire and be inspired by a new generation of creatives. Over the years, GALXBOY bridged the gap between streetwear and luxury, redefining and embracing diversity for urban culture, through innovative design that allows the freedom to express the SMART, AFRICAN, AMBITIOUS mantra.
