Having never worked in the clothing manufacturing industry before nor did i have a tertiary education in designing, Design26 was started in February 2013 as a legacy to my late mother. Design26 is 100% women owned business and trading as a Pty Ltd. We operate in Mitchells Plain where we manufacture ladies ready to wear clothing and offer a specialised service in custom made special occasion dresses. We also provide free sewing skills training including free transport to young girls aged 15 to 21 and teenage mothers of Mitchells Plain and surrounding areas.How will you use the R100k prize in your business?
We will decide between two options. One is to invest the money in order for us to purchase property and open our own one-stop-shop that will be the first to enter the Mitchells Plain market or we would use to money to purchase machinary in order to produce well constructed and quality garments which will afford us the opportunity to price our garments according to quality. We will also use some of the money to have our website done professionally which will enable our customers to buy online and also to have our our buying app
