Fashion One, the leading New York based international fashion, entertainment and lifestyle network – brings the latest and the biggest fashion event in Africa to the world, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town 2017.

African Fashion International’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week events are well-known and accredited in the industry as being the most lavish and prestigious on the continent. Only the finest established designers and the best emerging creatives are handpicked and invited to showcase their collections. This year’s event proved yet again why African design and patterns are highly regarded and are trending globally.

In Inside Fashion Week AFI Cape Town 2017, the channel will showcase the highlights of the most talked about shows including from the world-renowned South African designers: David Tlale, whose work is always eye-catching and provocative; and Gavin Rajah who is known for his exquisite tailoring and haute couture designs.

Also a crowd favourite is Senegalese fashion designer Adama Paris’ interpretation of the feminine version of “Sapeur” for the multicultural contemporary women. This show has it all, from behind the scenes, model casting, backstage hair and makeup, celebrity interviews and of course, great African street style.
