More than 25 local designers will showcase their latest creations through over 15 catwalk shows at the forthcoming edition of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town (MBFWCT), slated to run from July 24 to 26, 2014.

Themed ‘creative freedom’, the event will see the latest spring/summer trends in women’s ready-to-wear and wedding couture as well as menswear looks created by a host of established and emerging designers.

 
The line-up’s well-known names include the likes of Gavin Rajah, KLûK CGDT, Stefania Morland, Marianne Fassler, Fabiani and Craig Port, Lara Klawikowski, Pichulik, Nicholas Coutts, Michelle Ludek, Tart, Ruald Rheeder, Non-European, Spilt Milk, Lo, Lazuli, and Danielle Margaux and Selfi.

The rising design talents like Nicholas Coutts, Alexandra Blanc, Ernest Mahomane and Eleni Labrou would also form a part of the three-day event’s young designers’ list.

In addition to the above mentioned names, a special couture catwalk show, staged by fashion students studying at various design institutions, would also be hosted at the soiree.

Apart from the runway shows, conferences on topics ranging from business advices for budding labels and how to stay on trend, will be hosted on the sidelines of the event.

While speaking to the media Sizwe Nzimande, the spokesman for MBFWCT organizer African Fashion International (AFI), explained “As Cape Town enjoys its status as World Design Capital 2014, we are celebrating creative freedom under the pillars of fashion, art and design, with exciting developmental platforms to add a uniquely engaging element to the event.”

Started around six years ago, AFI serves as a platform for bringing in designers from the entire continent to the forefront. The event offers direct access to the designers to domestic and international markets.
