The Best of African Design on Display at AFI's Durban July Fashion Show

The future of African fashion was on full display at the Hollywoodbets Durban July, as African Fashion International (AFI) produced a showstopping fashion showcase.  

After stealing the show during the Durban July Raceday Fashion Awards, winning the Classic Racewear Male and securing runner-up spots in the Exceptional Hat/Fascinator and Classic Racewear Female categories, it was time for what AFI does best- produce a fashion show.  

The AFI Fashion Experience at the Gemelli Marquee became a fashion destination as models took to strutting in the finest fashions by the AFI Fastrack 2023 finalists, House of Nala by AFI, and a select group of Africa's best designers. 

The show was a hit with attendees, who were treated to a feast for the eyes.  

From the bold colours of House of Nala womenswear and the nudes of House of Nala menswear to the sleek, sophisticated designs of AFI Fastrack finalists, there was something for everyone.  

Then came a show featuring seasoned Pan-African designers. AFI curated an eight-designer showcase featuring some of the best looks from Cape Town Fashion Week. Featured in the show were Taibo Bacar, Scalo, Masa Mara, Malondie, Kaylaamiel Creations, K. Moraba & Collective, Gvllvnt and Imprint ZA 

The AFI Fashion Experience at the Durban July, was a celebration of the creativity and diversity of African fashion. It was a reminder that African fashion is not just about traditional garments, but also about innovative designs that are pushing the boundaries of what is possible. And it was a sign that African fashion is on the rise, and that it is here to stay.
