MasterG

MasterG uses apparel design as a medium to question the status quo, create hope and propel marginalised communities into leading lives of dignity. This is done through a comprehensive training, certification and employment program for the fashion industry, that condenses the traditional decades-long apprenticeship model of training into a year long, industry-standards module. The program helps women learn from “Master G” in the industry, while earning a living with dignity in a notoriously informal and exploitative industry, skewed in favour of male family tailors. MasterG provides its services for a fee to organisations who wish to offer skill development programs. MasterG students are connected with designers, boutiques and factories for employment. They track the progress of their students from beginning to post-completion, as well as help them gain employment after training.
