JHB Fashion Week Spring/Summer announced

fashion weekWe’re a little bewildered with the number of Fashion weeks around the country, however the point is that every one of them showcases our homegrown fashion designers and the awesome talent that abounds, fueling the industry and bringing much needed exposure and support.  August 2007 features the first Spring/Summer collections to be held in Jozi, straight after the CT one – let’s hope the week will include exposure for those less-established, up-and-coming designers – let’s watch this space:

Exciting newcomers, David Tlale, Thabani Mavundla, Craig Jacobs and Thula Sindi are set to show at the launch day of the inaugural Joburg Fashion Week Spring Summer Collections, fresh from their triumphant showcase at Paris Couture Week. Their C’est Couture collections will be returning from Paris to hit the South African catwalk on the opening day of Joburg Fashion Week. 

The City of Johannesburg has become headline sponsor of Joburg Fashion Week spring/summer, which will be held at Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton City from the 22nd to 25th August. Audi will remain as annual sponsor of the autumn/winter event, Audi Joburg Fashion Week. Both events provide designers from across South Africa with a world-class platform to showcase collections to an audience of buyers, media and the public.

“At African Fashion International (AFI) we pride ourselves on presenting many of South Africa’s most respected fashion designers. Joburg Fashion Week provides a world-class stage from which our leading designers can conduct business and show the world their unique African designs.  We believe this new event will help position local designers to compete more effectively in what is an increasingly fast moving and global marketplace.  The leadership of our best designers will ultimately inspire other designers and add further fuel to our creative economy” said Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe.

Joburg Fashion Week spring/summer will feature some of South Africa’s foremost design talent including fashion doyenne Marianne Fassler, Sun Goddess, Jenni Button for Philosophy, Kluk CGdT, Hip Hop, Habits, couturier Spero Villioti, Sonwabile Ndamase, Fred Eboka, Craig Port and Gavin Rajah, who also returns from Paris Couture Week.

The week follows sister event, Cape Town Fashion Week, held two weeks before Johannesburg Fashion Week. The link between the two events gives South Africa’s leading designers the flexibility, for the first time, to showcase spring/summer collections in the country’s two key fashion business districts for both fashion seasons via African Fashion International events.

“The City of Johannesburg is proud to announce our support for this important event. As the business heart of South Africa, Johannesburg represents an essential market for the fashion industry and we believe this event will provide a significant and strategic boost for the creative economy of South Africa,” said Councilor Parks Tau, Member of the Mayoral Committee responsible for Finance and Economic Development in the City of Joburg.
