PICS: Top streetstyle looks at AFI Fashion Week

Last week we attended the AFI Fashion Week where fashionistas, critics buyers, celebrities, the media and the public all gathered to get a preview of  the spring/summer 2020 collections from acclaimed African designers. 

Held at the Sandton Convention Centre on October 10-12, this season of AFI saw over 30 designers including David Tlale, Gavin Rajah, Kahindo, Nao Setari, Eric Raisina, Mia Afato, Loin Cloth & Ashes to name but a few take to their runway to showcase the biggest trends they’ve been working on.

As expected, attendees put their best foot forward and revealed their elite fashion sense. Nicole Davy walked the red carpet in stunning green pants, orange shirt and red hair.

Also wearing red was Miss SA, Zozibini Tunzi who went for a glittery suit, while the host of the red carpet, Thembisa Mdoda looked glamorous in a Dainty Frocks African print dress.

Had the pleasure of attending the @afi_sa fashion show with this amazing talent. I’ve been refraining from calling her my designer the whole night but she indeed worked her magic on these pants, thank you @avant_centric_being & @bohcol for doing the things😍😍. . . . . . . . . #artsonmain #sandton #afi #afifashionweek #designer #asmuhlewearsit #style #fashionmogulinthemaking #muhlematthew #fashionweek #black #queer #queereye #billionairesandton
