Welcome to IAMUWC Alumni Fashion Show


 IAMUWC Alumni Fashion Show


UWC has some of the best alumni apparel in its store, judging by the popularity of the Campus Lifestyle Store. And on 14 April 2015 a packed Student Centre was enraptured

The eight models were selected from hundreds of entrants who took part in the Alumni #I’m UWC Selfie Competition 2015, a contest run since the beginning of the year by the Alumni Office in conjunction with the Marketing and Branding unit – both located in the University’s Department of Institutional Advancement.

Students were asked to take selfies on campus that communicated the message of UWC students being proud and happy. “We want to celebrate our University by showing our pride, loyalty, passion and commitment for UDUBS through your selfies,” read the brief to contestants. “Your selfie should promote the positive and practical ways in which UWC can make the world a better place.”

The purpose of the contest was to create awareness about the Alumni Office, prepare students for their future role as alumni and cultivate pride and loyalty for the Institution by encouraging them to wear the University brand.

Hundreds of students heeded the call and sent their selfies to the Alumni Office through social media and email. The eight finalists selected were Davida Messeur, Chanell van Heerden, Uzayr Shira, Mogammad Adh-har Jardien, Tristan Hay, Khuselwa Kafu, Ashton Van Der Rheede and Aashiqah Laingno.

The winners not only took home interesting prizes such as those ever popular selfie sticks, they also modelled the winter and summer clothing ranges at the fashion show.

The new alumni clothing range is on sale now and can be purchased at the University’s Campus Lifestyle Store.​
