Celebs, entertainers, fashion influencers and street photographers gathered in their numbers in Melrose Arch in Joburg last night for the spring and summer season of the African Fashion International Johannesburg 2018 Fashion Week (#AFIJFW). 

Designers Matte Nolim, Ri.Ch Factory, Khosi Nkosi and Orapeleleng Moditle impressed with their spring/summer 2019 collections. 

However, it was the celebs that dominated the runway that stole the limelight showing off designs by Ri.Ch Factory and Khosi Nkosi. 

South Africa’s media darling and actress, Nomzamo Mbatha, practically lit up the tent when she came down the runway wearing the showstopper by Ri.Ch Factory. Her beaming smile and the multi-coloured dress was undoubtedly the highlight of the evening.

During the Khosi Nkosi show, there was a moment of romance when Dineo Moeketsi and her bae Solo shared a kiss at the end of the runway. Both wearing red, the colour of love of course.
