AFI Insider

Africa’s leading fashion events producer, retailer, and designer development platform, Africa Fashion International will once again be producing Cape Town Fashion Week and the Mother City will, as always, impress with its beautiful landscapes, venues, and vibes.  

UPDATE: Cape Town Fashion Week has been moved to later in 2024. 

Building on its remarkable 17-year legacy of nurturing African design talent and propelling them onto the global stage, Africa Fashion International (AFI) is pioneering a strategic evolution for its signature Fashion Week events. As a result, Cape Town Fashion Week 2024 has been rescheduled for later this year to facilitate this exciting evolution of AFI Fashion Weeks.  



Cape Town’s warm afternoons and cool evenings allow one to enjoy the spoils of autumn. It's the best time to experience the latest in African fashion, as Cape Town shows off its iconic landscapes. 

But it’s not just about the weather.

It's about the best fashion, lifestyle, entertainment, and shopping experience to hit the city every year. 

Here's a quick look at what you can expect from Cape Town Fashion Week 2024. 


The Best Pan- African Fashion Designers: Like all AFI events, Cape Town Fashion Week will be a showcase of Pan-African fashion, featuring designers from across the continent and the diaspora. Cape Town Fashion Week will feature a mix of runway shows, presentations, and installations. You'll get to see the latest collections from leading fashion designers and experience first-hand, the stunning pieces that make up the collections.

Emerging Talent: AFI has always been at the forefront of nurturing and promoting emerging fashion talent. During Cape Town Fashion Week, you'll get to see some of the best rising fashion stars show off their creative genius. The AFI Fastrack 2023 Finalists will showcase what will be their final collections ahead of the winner being chosen. 


The AFI Masterclass: Cape Town Fashion Week is not just about fashion shows, but it's also a platform for dialogue and discussion around the fashion industry. The AFI Masterclass is a series of conversations with some of the most influential names in the fashion industry. You'll get to experience insight from global fashion leaders, who will be sharing their experiences and perspectives on the business of fashion. 

Shop The Runway: Cape Town Fashion Week is not just about seeing the latest fashion trends, but it's also about being able to experience them. The House of Nala by AFI Pop-Up Store allows you to purchase items straight off the runway, allowing you to be one of the first to wear the garments fresh off the runway. It's a great opportunity to add unique pieces to your wardrobe and support local designers. 


Lifestyle Experience: Cape Town boasts a distinctive culture, and the same holds for Cape Town Fashion Week. Beyond the captivating fashion shows, this event offers a delightful immersion into the essence of Cape Town's lifestyle.

At the AFI Expo and Retail Marketplace, you're in for a treat – pop-up shops, exhibitions, tutorials, delectable food, Sip & Shop experiences with designers, and more await.

Whether you're on the lookout for the latest in fashion, entertainment, lifestyle, beauty, wine, cuisine, art, and technology, Cape Town Fashion Week is the perfect place to find it all. 

Come for the fashion, but stay for the lifestyle experience. 


You will be the first to find out key information- from the date and venue announcements, the model casting, showcasing designer applications, media and industry accreditation applications, the AFI Masterclass, competitions and opportunities to retail at the AFI Expo and Retail Marketplace, the internship opportunities and so much more!

UPDATE: Cape Town Fashion Week has been moved to later in 2024.
