“Africa has always been a source of inspiration for the rest of the world. AFI is set up to showcase and propel African designers in order to promote their businesses. Africa can definitely compete with the global brands given the support and an enabling ecosystem, that is what AFI seeks to facilitate." 

“The idea of going back home is all about building a future, through strengthening the present and acknowledging the past. Our presence in the market is only as great as our ability to stand out,” says  AFI Founder and CEO, Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe.

AFI Cape Town Fashion Week started on April 11-13 and these are some of the designs that stood out the most.
