Our Fashion Events

African Fashion International (AFI) is a pioneering fashion organisation that produces first-rate fashion weeks and events.

Established with the goal of introducing African fashion to the world, we host two premier events annually: Cape Town Fashion Week

in the early months and Joburg Fashion Week at the end of the year. Our events offer a broad range of African fashion,

design, and style to an international viewing audience.
