The African Fashion International’s (AFI) Fashion Weeks have always been known for their world-class fashion events, showcasing designers from all over the continent in Joburg and in Cape Town. Last year it marked the conclusion of a 6-year partnership with title sponsor Mercedes-Benz South Africa.
While AFI celebrated its 10-year anniversary, the announcement that CEO and Founder of AFI, Dr Moloi-Motsepe, had been nominated for the Fashion 4 Development Franca Sozzani Award was an affirmation that African Fashion is moving in the right direction.
