AFI's Power To Empower Event : A Celebration of Women

A Day of Fashion, Beauty, Inspiration, and Empowerment for Women at AFI's Power To Empower High Tea

It was a day of fashion, beauty, inspiration, and empowerment for women from all walks of life at AFI's Power To Empower High Tea.

Hosted at the ultra-exclusive Houghton Golf Club, the event was a celebration of the strides that women continue to make, the glass ceilings they shatter, and the barriers they break.

The glamorous event was hosted by none other than Miss Universe 2019, Zozibini Tunzi, who dazzled the audience with her charm and wit. Among the distinguished guests were the reigning Miss South Africa 2023, Natasha Joubert, and her stunning runner-up, Bryoni Govender.


As is custom with AFI events, fashion was a drawcard. Guests were given a preview of the House of Nala by AFI Sandton City store's Spring/Summer collection. The collection featured designs from across the African continent, including Gavin Rajah, Malondie, Taibo Bacar, and Jeyna A.

South Africa's leading models, including Andiswa Manxiwa, Cindy Lee Joseph and Loren Jenneker, took to the venue, walking in-between tables allowing the guests to have a closer look at the garments on show.
