Eight talented designers, four from South Africa and four from Italy, were selected to participate in a dynamic three-month virtual mentorship program hosted by Polimoda. This program was an opportunity for the designers to develop their skills and refine their collections. The results of their hard work were showcased to the world at Camera Moda's Fashion Hub during Milan Fashion Week in September 2021 and at South African Fashion Week in Johannesburg in October 2021.

Some Other Label was the press coordinator for the project and used the platform of SOL to tell the story of Fashion Bridges. The project received widespread recognition and coverage in leading fashion publications such as Business of Fashion, Fashion Network Italia, MF Fashion, and Vogue Italia.
