African Fashion International presents an exciting season of AFI Cape Town Fashion Week where African designers will play on the runway revealing their latest collections.
The Mother City will be turned into an all-week fashion extravaganza when designers from Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Cameron and Morocco with strong African aesthetic in their creations pair up with local favourites such as Maxhosa by Laduma, Imprint, and Marianne Fassler.

“Africa has always been a source of inspiration for the rest of the world. AFI is set up to showcase and propel African designers in order to promote their businesses. Africa can definitely compete with the global brands given the support and an enabling ecosystem, that is what AFI seeks to facilitate,” says AFI Founder and CEO, Dr. Precious Moloi-Motsepe.
While the world is investing in appealing to African consumers, home-grown creatives have the responsibility to set the trends. Picture: Supplied.
