WATCH THIS SPACE


African Fashion International (AFI) ventured into a new and exciting space to host Cape Town's prestigious Fashion Week coming up on the 30th July to the 1st August 2015 at none other than the Watershed and North Wharf, a beautifully restored and revamped venue at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.  This global event promises to impress guests with no less than 30 designers, and home grown that is!  The organization carefully curates and promotes African-designed products that are on par with the rest of the world, keeping us in high esteem in the fashion industry!

Mercedes-Benz continues to be the title sponsor  and will no doubt continue to contribute greatly towards the timeless elegance and glamour of the show. AFI states that it remains committed to growing a new legion of designers through the AFI Fastrack and Next Generation programmes, uplifting the industry and promoting education through it's dedicated project.
This year's event will take place at the most beautiful setting with Table Mountain, the mother of mountains and an international icon, as a backdrop, giving it a unique view and atmosphere, not far from the glitz and glamour of the popular   V & A stores and restaurants where fashion cognoscenti may be convening in between shows and peacocking in their fashionable attire.
"We chose to move Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town to the V&A Waterfront to give this landmark event a revitalised perspective against a magnificent setting, placing this premier event at the heart of one of Cape Town’s most iconic destinations,” says Sizwe Nzimande, group marketing manager of African Fashion International (AFI), organisers of the event.
 “As the Watershed is home to some of South Africa’s most inspiring design and located in the heart of the V&A Waterfront, we are confident that the new home of Cape Town fashion is going to be a firm favourite among designers, models, sponsors, fashionistas and media alike.”
