What is Style Squad?

It’s a fashion design competition for SA’s kids ages 9-15, that gives you the chance to show off your unique style and mind-blowing creativity.

There are huge prizes to be won, including the chance to design your own clothing range and have it sold in all Ackermans stores across Southern Africa! And, if being a totally famous fashion designer isn’t enough – you could also win over R20 000 in prizes!

Competition Details

It’s a race to the top in this knock-out round competition! All our aspiring young designers will show us their skills by completing a fashion-focused activity. We’ll show off their amazing work for the public to see, vote for their favourites and determine who will make it to the next round. We’ll do this all again for 2 more rounds, until the cream of the fashion crop make it to the finals and complete the fourth and ultimate activity. A panel of Ackermans judges will select the 2 winners (1 girl, 1 boy) from the finalists and crown them the Style Squad 2018 champs.

Think you have what it takes to be our next champ?

Are you between the ages of 9 & 15?
