#FASHIONWEEK: AFI Cape Town Fashion Week – Where and When - #IAMAFRICA

And we have confirmation – AFI Cape Town Fashion, 21-24 March, 2018, will be hosted at the industrial Salt River Film Studios. A great choice, considering the amount of vast space the platform will get to play with and maximize in order to create an auspicious fashion week experience for its guests.

The theme for this year’s Cape Town Fashion Week is #IamAfrica, AFI’s calling summed up in one concise hashtag – to celebrate and showcase exceptional African creative talent on a global stage. Honoured with the iaugural Franca Sozzani ‘Fashion 4 Development’Award in recognition of her efforts in empowering and showcasing African designers, AFI Executive Chairman Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe is fearlessly committed to helping African fashion shine.

Seasoned show producer and newly appointed Production Director for AFI Cape Town Fashion Week, Jan Malan, is renowned for staging fashion shows in unique spaces. “There’s something about this old gritty industrial space that excites me”, muses Production Director, Jan Malan. “The unique façade and indoor architecture style of Salt River Film Studios boasts unusually high roof beams and an extensive gantry system, which is great for lighting and our complex rigging requirements. We’ve got some incredible plans and I can’t wait to see it all come together.”

#FASHIONWEEK: African Fashion International Cape Town Fashion Week is Here

Sometime during 2017 a few of us came across whispers of change within the local fashion industry with regards to the involvement of certain brands with certain fashion platforms. True to form, the talk of Mercedes-Benz locally, following global instruction from international, exited from involvement with local fashion week properties. In 2018, reclaimed, reimagined and reinvigorated, these platforms have found a new breath of life and are here to revitalize the industry.

The all-new African Fashion International (AFI) Cape Town Fashion Week (AFICTFW) is and during 21-24 March, 2018, will bring you a star-studded fashion affair of fashion, design and art. This year’s theme seeks to allow the consumer to encounter an unbridled experience of Africa through an organic fusion of various elements, casting an enchantment on guests that will imprint a pride of culture and couture on the heart.

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 heritage.

In order to be part of this experience, be sure to check out the platform’s social media channels, including Facebook – - for details, or visit their website – - for the schedule and ticket sales.
