Day 1 I Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Jo’burg – AFI PRIVE
It’s been a long time coming for AFI Privé, a brand that has taken much planning and patience to finally become a reality. In a rare move by an events company, African Fashion International (AFI) finally unveiled its in-house brand – AFI Privé – at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg (MBFWJ), this Thursday, 18th of August. AFI Privé successfully took up artistic residency on the runway, as it revealed its opening collection this season. Titled Under the African Sun, the collection was inspired by the harsh, dry, and sun-streaked landscapes of Africa, designed for its intrepid and cultured wearer. “The collection offers classical, translatable pieces to suit a woman of any age. Our woman is well-travelled, informed, and proud of her Pan-African roots,” says AFI Privé Designer, Tayla Nguskos.
