Mandy van Tonder from Umhlanga, is the designer for the ladies wear brand VTON. She grew up in a small community in the North West Province and has been fortunate to have worked in various fields of business. Having worked in the retail and corporate sector, with 10 years working experience and astrong business background, she started up, VTON.
This year will be the second consecutive year that Van Tonder is involved in the Durban Fashion Fair. She is also a representative of the Milan internship through the eThekwini Municipality Business Support, Tourism and Markets Unit Fashion Development Programme for 2012/2013. The internship in Milan was a great opportunity for her as she says she learnt a great deal about the importance of communication, marketing, organisation of a fashion show and media and realised “that a fashion designer cannot be successful without proper planning and research.”
