African Fashion International (AFI) has rebranded its fashion week properties to AFI Cape Town Fashion Week and AFI Joburg Fashion Week. AFI Cape Town Fashion Week will take place from 21-24 March 2018.
“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 with new talent.
AFI Cape Town Fashion Week is emerging as a destination for a fusion of fashion, art, and design and will showcase a range of collections from African fashion royalty and rising star designers and artists.
