The FIX Upcycling Designer Showcase

The FIX is committed to showcasing local manufacturing, local employment, uplifting communities and supporting local skills development. The FIX seeks to provide opportunities to empower youth whilst being a proudly South African brand.   One of these projects is The FIX Upcycling Designer Showcase, which celebrates the talent of eight local designers using repurposed material to create cutting-edge fashion pieces.   The designers are selected from nationally accredited tertiary institutions and are tasked with re-using and repurposing The FIX’s store window banners, made out of polynet fabrics, to create their own unique collections.   This culminates in a fashion show hosted by The Fix which showcases their creations. The designers are further supported by the Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda) and TFG’s learnership and development programmes.   The FIX has been on this journey for a couple of seasons, exploring the world of sustainable fashion.  The FIX’s sub-brand, called Changes, speaks to using recycled fabrics and producing products locally. It has also evolved into collaborations with local graphic artists to interpret sustainability for the Changes range.     The FIX’s Upcycling Designer Showcase is another example of how TFG is committed to local manufacturing, job creation, and supporting skills development.
