AFX Promotes Business of Fashion

Get ready to be part of a remarkable journey that will lead you to one of KwaZulu-Natal’s most glamourous red-carpet event from September 27-29, 2018, the 2018 Africa Fashion Exchange (AFX), hosted by the KZN Fashion Council (KZNFC), to be held in Durban.

The crème da la crème of fashion and high- end designers from KZN, other parts of South Africa, and neighbouring African countries are expected to descend on the Province.

The KZNFC will create an arena that is conducive for business-to-business meetings, networking opportunities and linkages with retailers and buyers to boost business in fashion and textile industries. The three-day show will be underpinned under the theme, “Africa By Design” which will be incorporated throughout the three-day event in the various platforms. KZNFC promotes the AFX which is key to the survival of the fashion industry in the province, the country and the continent. It is envisaged that it will begin to address the most inherent challenges of the industry – the lack of the necessary sustained exposure and suitable platforms from which South African and African designers can market their products, exchange business ideas and set the agenda for the fashion sector in sub-Saharan Africa.

The AFX will incorporate a variety of activities that will provide its participants with an experience like no other. This includes: knowledge sharing sessions with renowned guest speakers, prestigious fashion shows, exhibitions, film screenings and back to back business meetings with buyers and designers.
