Cape Town Fashion Week next victim blown out by strong Cape winds

Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe, African Fashion International (AFI) Chairperson, says The Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion Week is an important event that promotes local fashion designers.

Just a few weeks ago, the Cape Town Cycle Tour was also cancelled due to the Cape's notorious Black South-Easter.

The event has been moved to the 6-8 April following a postponement due to strong winds.

She says once the venue is confirmed the public will be alerted.

Listen to the clip for further details of the fashion week:

However, we will NOT condone the following:

  • Racism (including offensive comments based on ethnicity and nationality)
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Religious intolerance
  • Cyber bullying
  • Hate speech
  • Derogatory language
  • Comments inciting violence.
