Johannesburg will be awash with style, elegance and beauty for four days in June and July when the world's leading African Fashion designers from across the continent and Diaspora gather to showcase the finest contemporary African design at the second annual Africa Fashion Week.
The exquisite collections of 33 designers will feature in 19 runway shows from June 30 to July 3.
"Africa Fashion Week (AFW) is potentially the most important platform for the African fashion industry, being perfectly positioned to promote African designers globally," said African Fashion International (AFI) chairperson Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe.
It is rare, in fact completely unique, to have all the leading voices in African Fashion in one place, at one time, in one country.
Those voices will give expression to Africa's fashion future at a two-day seminar that runs alongside the runway shows; and that will examine ways of strengthening the burgeoning African Fashion industry, debating an African aesthetic and building a global network.
