Fashion Guru SA, an exciting fashion design showpiece that pits designers from several regions in the country against each other, filmed its first episode over the weekend.

Designers, models and TV crew members descended at the Riviera on Vaal Hotel in Vereeniging in the Vaal on Saturday.

Nine talented South African designers arrived at the hotel with their sewing machines, design assistants and models hoping to impress judges, professional designers JJ Schoeman and Isabel Graca.

The designers, who were trained at different and leading fashion design schools, were each allocated a workstation from where they worked to produce garments to amaze the watching judges.

After the designs were done, models were brought in to showcase the masterpieces and the judges made their comments and decisions.

Some of the designers were eliminated from the show, while others are still in line to become the inaugural Fashion Guru SA winner.

Producer Sonia Klurpion said that the show seeks to find and profile South Africa’s most talented up and coming designers.

“This is a new concept that will afford unknown young designers in South Africa the opportunity to shine,” she said.

Judge and fashion mogul, JJ Schoeman said: “We are happy to see such a fresh idea that is going to take South Africa by storm.”

Fellow judge Isabel Graca said she expected the show to encourage and motivate trained young designers not to leave the business after receiving training at different fashion design institutions.

“The contestants drew beautiful sketches and went on to produce even more dazzling garments,” she said.
