BE YOU this summer with African Fashion International. A showcase of the utopia that Africa truly is, the AFI fashion show will be taking place between the 29th and 30th of October at the recently launched Alto 234. With a catwalk set on Africa’s highest Urban Bar on the 57th floor at the Leonardo building in Sandton, this hybrid experience of fashion and self-expression is a dedication to the creative spirit that resides within all of us.
Encouraging you to BE YOU, BE TRULY AFRICAN this year’s theme celebrates all the unique and multifaceted expressions of being African in a globalised world. In coming together, after a long period of isolation, we are presenting a renewed outlook on who we are and what makes us unique. Driven by lifestyle and fashion, the emerging and established designers will showcase their latest collections, having reimagined new trends to complement the new way of living.
An AFI curated experience.
Growing from last year’s event, AFI will again partner with Anglo American Platinum. In addition, they will also be showcasing this year’s PlatAfricaJewellery Design & Manufacture Competition finalists as part of AFI Fashion Week Joburg 2021.
AFI is renowned for hosting world-class fashion and lifestyle experiences. Guests can expect an expressive blend of fashion, cuisine, cocktails, live music and a 360-degree view of the city of Joburg. In-person and virtual guests can SHOP THE RUNWAY with House of Nala. They have curated offerings from pan-African ready-to-wear and luxury brands. The Shop the Runway Experience will travel to Durban and Cape Town, bringing you the African luxury fashion to your city.
Easing into less restrictive lockdown, AFI is campaigning for a reset toward meaningful ways of living – challenging guests to be more passionate, bolder and to just BE YOU.
