WINNING FASHION DESIGNS

Two fashion designers and brothers from Montana, Pretoria North, recently won a prestigious designer award in Las Vegas. Johan (42) and Fritz Botha (30) from F. Wilson Fashion Design participated in the Emerging Designers competition in August, winning with their bridal couture range. The win secured them a spot in the Las Vegas Fashion Week, set to take place in February 2013. Their father passed away when Fritz was four years old. Johan took evening classes with a mentor, as he couldn't afford the study fees after his father's death. Fritz joined the business four years ago. One of their designs, worn by the TV personality Jacinda Louw-Schutte, won the Vodacom Best Dressed VIP prize at this year's Durban July.
