When you think of South African fashion and its creative design community, there is only one brand synonymous with both: SA Fashion Week. With a celebrated 21 year history, SA Fashion Week continues to tell designer stories nationally and internationally, on and off the runway.
The South African Fashion Week is the driving force behind structuring, strengthening and growing a consciousness of the enormous socio-economic value of a vibrant South African fashion design culture.
SAFW, the only Business to Business platform in Africa, markets the designer collections to the buyers, media, celebrities and the designer bespoke clients. This season, SAFW will open its doors to 34 designers showing their Spring/Summer Collections on the runway, and 50 labels trading wholesale at the SAFW Trade Show which runs parallel to the runway collections.
The core of SS19, The Luxury Collections, is to redefine and highlight the meaning of luxury in African fashion.
If you don’t know by now, SA Fashion Week showcases the best designs and creations from local designers. Now in its 22nd year, this annual week-long showcase is dedicated to fashion, style and beautiful signature pieces, on-trend looks and seasonal must-haves. SA Fashion Week exhibits the talent of 60 designers during five days of non-stop fashion fun.
This means you get to indulge in a night out mingling with fashion’s finest as you peruse the SA Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2019 Collections. If you’re all about celebrating the power and influence of local fashion, then you don’t want to miss out on this fabulous fashion extravaganza!
