David West began selling one-off handmade jeans in Long Street while completing his studies. His range has since been exported to Japan, Europe and the UK. He’s had two stores in Cape Town, partnering with like-minded creatives outside of fashion to create exciting retail spaces. David has been recognised as one of South Africa’s most progressive designers and was recently included in the Mail & Guardian’s Top 200 Young South Africans. He currently designs for Woolworths’ womenswear.
