Design Challenge:
Stoned Cherrie’s Nkhensani Nkosi has been tasked with coming up with new designs for her Love Movement range of Afro chic products, currently housed within 50 Foschini stores nationwide. Foschini has purchased an existing building in the Woodstock area of Cape Town to house Nkhensani’s design studio and workshop for her Stoned Cherrie – Love Movement fashion range, as well as provide display and retail space for her new designs.
Although space is at a premium, Foschini are of the opinion that an additional revenue generator should be considered in order to assist in carrying the operating costs of the building. While Nkhensani has defined clear guidelines as to her requirements for the design studio and fashion retail space, the proposed additional income generator is, as yet, undefined. The only firm guideline is that, whatever the extra source of income, it must be branded ‘Enjoy Responsibly’.
Submission Requirements:
Physical submission of 3 A2 laminated sheets of plan, section, and drawings
