The journey of SA's influential woman Dr Precious Moloi Motsepe

702's Azania Mosaka chats to Founder of Africa Fashion International Dr Precious Moloi Motsepe and one of SA's iconic fashion designers, Marianne Fassler.

African Fashion International promotes fashion designers from all over Africa and promotes enterprise development in the fashion industry.

AFI is also the host of the renowned Mercedes Benz Fashion week which will be held in Johannesburg from 17- 19 August at Mall of Africa.

This year's event will also celebrate the 10 years anniversary since its inception.

If you ask me what I am the proudest of in the past 10 years, it is definitely profiling a lot of designers who have now become household names like David Tlale, Thula Sindi....

I am also proud that we have opened up fashion week which was previously just an industry focused event to the public.
