About us

SA Fashion Institutes (SAFI) is a start-up organization established to address the
issues and challenges facing the fashion industry in South African, mainly for the
previous disadvantage groups. Our programs will mostly service youth and
women who, due to economics and geography, lack access to enabling
environments that allow them to be commercially active and thriving. SAFI
presents a variety of activities that include skills development and practical
experience, access to market, business support and retail platforms.

 

“SAFI recognizes the elements required to grow a sustainable industry that will
not only empower the society of SA, but also allow the people of SA to
participate in the economy not only as consumers but have ownership too!!
This will be achieved by:

○ Making local products competitive to the exported items in terms of quality
and pricing
○ Upskilling our role players in the industry
○ Make materials easily accessible to designers by producing them locally by
so doing further creating more jobs in this sector
○ Make the final products accessible to the masses by creating retail stores in
major business hubs and online
○ Market our product internationally so to create more and export our craft
○ Drive the “Wear local” campaign as to further boost the demand of volumes
