LISOF was established 23 years ago and, more than being registered with the Council on Higher Education, we are extremely well regarded within the South African fashion industry. Our CEO, Shana Rosenthal, has, over the years, built deep and meaningful relationships with South African fashion retailers who all fully support our commitment to Work Integrated Learning. LISOF students are exposed to the world of work from the first year and engage in an in-depth and meaningful experiential learning process in their 3rd year of study. These same South African retailers are also often willing to make offers of employment to our students as they believe that they are of a superior quality. Students that are successful in their studies are able to continue with the LISOF BA Honours in Fashion (also registered and accredited) where over and above the theoretical and research components of the studies, they are given the opportunity to engage again in a long term experiential learning process in the industry where they are payed a monthly stipend for their efforts.
Life on campus is bustling and filled with creative energy. The canteen is a great fueling station to relax and discuss the latest fashion week. The hallways are filled with budding fashion photographers instagramming and blogging their point of view. The students connect and network and often later in life, they collaborate and work together in the fashion industry.
