A SUCCESS STORY FOR EVERYONE
FEDISA was created to deliver more than seamstresses and pattern-makers to the world of fashion. FEDISA graduates can today be found in an astounding array of careers across the globe. These range from working for Marchessa and Diane von Furstenburg in New York to Christopher Kane in London and Haikure in Milan.
There are designers and buyers, editors and stylists, visual merchandisers, fashion technologists, and costume archivists. The list of local and international employment opportunities simply keeps growing for these talented and committed graduates. FEDISA has also significantly contributed to exporting some amazing talent into the African continent, with Temitope Williams – FEDISA Graduate 2009 launching her own teaching academy in Lagos, Nigeria recently.
AND WE ARE STILL GROWING
Another great success of FEDISA is the large number of students that the institution continues to attract from across South Africa and the rest of the world. To this end FEDISA has developed students from as far afield as the United States of America, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Slovakia, Jordan, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe and many more.
FEDISA’s unprecedented growth remains premised on the ethos of excellence that continues to permeate all aspects of the institute, from the highly qualified academic staff and world-class educational facilities to the exceptionally diverse programme content and enormous annual Graduate Collection Show. FEDISA graduates are now so highly regarded in industry that final year students are headhunted by all the major players, often before they have graduated.
