FID Design Exhibition Preview

Design-junkies, budding film-makers, fashion-fundis and multi-media mavens will be joining forces this Tuesday 23rd November at the Cape Town campus of CPUT. In an evening filled with spectacular designs and concepts, the Faculty of Informatics and Design hosts one of the highlights of its calendar - the annual FID Year End Exhibition, themed "Come See my Work".

Students from the 15 design courses will be showcasing work completed in 2010, as well as work that won prestigious prizes or was highly commended in external competitions. Some of these award-winning students include the Fashion Design Department’s Rene Burger, Le Roux Hofmeyer from Interior Design and Geoff Brown from the Industrial Design Department. More than just a showcase of student work, the event also provides for interaction between upcoming designers, industry members and the general public. Some students will choose to sell their work, but if sold, the item will remain on exhibit until the show closes on Saturday 27th November.

The opening night begins with industry speakers addressing the students about career opportunities. This will be followed by an address by FID Dean Johannes Cronje and a video presentation showcasing the top achievers across the Faculty. The exhibition is then open for viewing, with a fashion show scheduled for the evening’s finale. Kicking-off at 6pm on Tuesday the 23rd, this not-to-be-missed exhibition takes place over all 3 floors of the Design Building, part of the Student Center and the Multi-Purpose Hall.
