Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion Week

Top-notch South African designers unveil their 2014 spring/summer collections


Luxury vehicle brand Mercedes Benz and African Fashion International (AFI) will team up once again to bring you the 2014 Cape Town Fashion Week at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from Thursday, 24 to Saturday, 26 July 2014.

With multiple shows over the three-day period, the festival grants top-notch South African designers – both legends of past and up-and-coming creatives – a platform to unveil their 2014 spring/summer collections.

From firm fashion favourites to emerging artists, the shows feature everything from glamorous garments, ready-to-wear pieces, wedding couture and the latest developments in menswear. Apart from the established names in the business, the annual couture conference affords young designers the opportunity to dazzle audiences with their fresh ideas and share the runway with the elite crew of trendy exhibitors.

In previous years, stalwart designers like David Tlale and Gavin Rajah have wowed fashion-fundis with weirdly wonderful collections and grand displays of chic suits and glam gowns and more. In addition to  the models on the catwalk, attendees are also known to be fabulously on trend and flaunt their sartorial sense.

Aside from checking out the competition, business savvy fashionistas can also look forward the much-anticipated conference where speakers give budding designers business advice and tips on how to stay on trend. Not to mention, AFI will also host a show where fashion students studying at institutions affiliated to the organisation are given the opportunity to put forth a showcase of their couture lines.
