Football Fan Fashion kicks off at UJ’s FADA

​​​The University of Johannesburg’s (UJ) Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture (FADA) will host the first leg of the Nedbank Cup Football Fan Fashion (#FFF) university campuses search on Monday, 13 April 2015.
Fashion Design students will compete for 16 slots on #FFF at the FADA auditorium. The selected student designers will collaborate with 16 football superfans and 16 of SA’s top designers between 13 -17 April 2015.
Through #FFF, each super fan will work closely with a top designer, who in turn will mentor a student designer from one of three fashion schools in designing pieces, which draw inspiration from the super fans’ colours and iconography.
“We are looking forward to working with these renowned universities and enabling the aspiring fashion designers to move closer to their dreams. This campaign provides us with an ideal platform to connect our focal areas and empower the youth and communities we serve with the resources they need to make things that really matter happen,” said Nkosinathi Msiza, Senior Communications Manager at Nedbank.
Students will present storyboards and garments depicting their creative process to a panel of judges, whose criteria for selection will be based on:​
  • Storyboard presentation (to show inspiration and level of research conducted).
  • Concept for their designs.
  • Originality (to show authenticity in their thinking and creative direction).
  • Final Garment (to show final design, execution and quality of the original idea and tailoring skills, as a physical demonstration from sketch to final product).
Now in its second year, the campaign celebrates and empowers the game’s super fans – those dedicated supporters who wear the love for their teams on their sleeves, painting their faces in their team colours and creating elaborate headgear to finish off the look.
Remaining true to its core business, Nedbank will also enable the students to be more financially savvy and provide its clients with an opportunity to make win their dreams. Ten clients simply have to share their ultimate dream by dialling *120*762# and stand a chance to win their share of R4 million.

The search will continue to the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and the Durban University of Technology (DUT).
