With the theme set as “Be You, Be Truly African” AFI prepares to host a glamorous fashion event at the newly launched Urban Bar, Alto 234 located on the 57th floor of one of the tallest buildings in Africa, The Leonardo, in Sandton.

With October known for being one of the busiest times for the fashion industry as designers prepare to showcase their designs for the next fashion season, AFI had the following to say in a statement about the momentous occasion:

“The theme, Be You, Be Truly African, celebrates all the unique and multifaceted expressions of being African in a globalized world. In coming together, after a long period of isolation, we are presenting a renewed outlook on who we are and what makes us unique. Driven by lifestyle and fashion, the emerging and established designers will showcase their latest collections, having reimagined new trends to complement the new way of living.”
