And the winner is …. Buda Malete! The young designer was announced as the AFI Young Designer of the Year for 2016, this Saturday. It was a tough decision for the judges, who spent the previous Friday afternoon selecting their winner with careful consideration.
Buda Malete was awarded R30 000 which will go towards building the Buda brand. This will not be the last we will see of him, as the determined designer will surely be regular on the catwalk.
