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! Our entrants completed 3 fashion related activities and battled their way through 3 rounds of public voting until only the top 20 finalists were remaining. These little fashionistas then styled, sketched and sweated their way through the fourth and final fashion design activity and a panel of judges selected the 2 champs – 1 girl, 1 boy.

The 2 winners will each receive R20 000 worth of prizes and the grand prize of designing their very own clothing range to be sold in all Ackermans stores across Southern Africa. And the winners are…Busisiwe Maphalala and Tshepo Tau! Click here to see more about these awesome up-and-coming designers.
