Cape Town Fashion week is the place to be this March. Fancy hats, striking shoes and a whole bunch of Mzanzi fashion it sure will be the place to be.
In line with global fashion capitals, African Fashion International (AFI) rebrands its Fashion Week Properties to AFI Cape Town Fashion Week and AFI Joburg Fashion Week.
Cape Townians will be able to brag, without reserve about Cape Town Fashion week in all its glory.
Breaking from tradition and forging a new path, AFI Cape Town Fashion Week walks off the ramp and through the Mother City’s most breath-taking landscapes and curated spaces, to reimagine ways to interact with luxury fashion, art and design and to be at the forefront of the global fashion stage.
Inspired by a bold, vibrant, and authentic African spirit and theme: #IAMAFRICA! AFI Cape Town Fashion Week celebrates the future of African luxury fashion with the power and confidence of the continent’s ancient creative heritages.
“The global north has always been inspired by Africa. Following its recognition with the Franca Sozzani award in New York, AFI is uniquely positioned to propel African fashion onto the global stage.” says AFI Executive Chairman, Dr. Precious Moloi Motsepe. In keeping with its longstanding commitment to support, develop and nurture talent across the continent, AFI has expanded to include multi-skilled art directors to capture the local fashion scene and stories, while uncovering fresh talent.
