Isn’t it the coolest fact that the African continent boasts the world’s largest millennial population and the fastest-growing middle class? #YAAAS
Creatives and fashion influencers from across Africa will turn up in Cape Town to experience a week-long of fashion festivities from 9 – 13 April.
The Mother City will be spoiled for choice as designers from Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Cameron and Morocco pair up with local favourites such as Maxhosa by Laduma, Imprint and Marianne Fassler.
“Africa has always been a source of inspiration for the rest of the world. Africa can definitely compete with the global brands given the support and an enabling ecosystem, that is what AFI seeks to facilitate.” AFI Founder and CEO, Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe
International luxury brands have penetrated local markets but lack valid African narratives that speak to distinct sense of style. While the world is investing in appealing to African consumers, home-grown creatives have the responsibility to set the trends.
