MBFWCT 2017 Coming Soon!

Now that MBFWJ 2016 has come and gone, AFI is heading to the Mother City for its next Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town 2017. Cape Town has etched out a reputation as one of the design capitals of the world, as it’s home to a growing number of designers and entrepreneurs in the art, fashion, interior design, architecture and film sectors.

Bryan Ramkilawan, the AFI Head of Department: Fashion, visited the city in search of the perfect backdrop for the next MBFWCT. Bryan confirmed that “locations are currently being scouted and shortlisted,” and a careful review of the designers that will showcase in Cape Town has begun. Bryan and his AFI team are determined to make this event even more of a success than the last one.

A curated selection of designers will descend upon the windy city to showcase their wares at the ultimate Fashion Week platform in Africa.


Media applications are now open on the AFI website.
