55 % of South Africans live on less than $75 per month.
The Room supports local South African Designers who are dedicated to making a change in their lives and the lives of others through fashion and design.
Our core belief is that each person should pay their own way as we have a greater desire to succeed if we are truly invested (in more ways than one), however sometimes, try as we may, lack of funding means success is always just out of reach. Opportunities can never become realised. Growth cannot be achieved. A life out of poverty continues to be just a dream.
The Room, through collaboration, works to bring designers together to share the costs of opportunities and growth and brings life changing experiences within reach.
