AFI Fashion Week sports a new look as it heads to Cape Town

We can’t wait for AFI Fashion Week, which heads to Cape Town next month. It sounds like it will be a feast for those who like things – especially beautiful things!  

African Fashion International (AFI) said on Tuesday it was relaunching its flagship events as AFI Cape Town Fashion Week and AFI Joburg Fashion Week. With the rebranding comes some innovative, funky ideas to complement the finest threads in the country.

The AFI said the continent’s fashion greats would hit the streets of Cape Town from 21 to 24 March for a fusion of fashion, art and design.

“Breaking with tradition, 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,” the AFI said.

AFI chair Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe said the Cape Town event was yet another chance to show the world what African fashion is made of.

“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,” Moloi-Motsepe said.

AFI Cape Town will showcase up-and-coming art directors to “capture the local fashion scene and stories, while uncovering fresh talent.”
