Cape Town - Mzansi Magic and Ndalo Pictures in association with 4th STREET Wines are proud to bring South Africa’s first ever version of Project Runway to local screens.

With just three weeks left for aspiring South African designers to enter Project Runway SA, here are a few reasons why you should enter before it’s too late.

It’s life changing

Nothing changes life quite as breathlessly fast as a reality show like Project Runway. People all over the country will see who you are. They’ll be talking about you, watching you. You’ll learn, you’ll grow. You’ll meet amazing people. You’ll be given keys that could open doors you’ve never even dreamed of.

You get your own mentor

Imagine having a mentor who could inspire you, guide you, support you and gently nudge you towards finding your own voice as a designer? Well, that’s exactly the kind of mentorship you get on Project Runway.

You could surprise yourself

The challenges are designed to separate the hopefuls from the icons in a push for brilliance. If you’re not shy to create something runway perfect from candy or newspaper or even potato sacks, you could well be ready to shine.
