Dates for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg (MBFWJ) 2015 have been announced, and Melrose Arch will once again play host. Following the incredible success and international praise which accompanied MBFWJ, MBFW Cape Town and MBFW Africa in 2014, 2015 promises to be no different.
Running from the 5th to the 7th of March 2015, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg 2015 will set the standard for a season of sartorial success, and continue to draw the attention of fashion media luminaries like Vogue Italia, Glamour France, Time Magazine, L’Officiel India Magazine, New African Women and BBC TV, all of which were in attendance at MBFWJ 2014.
“At Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg 2015, our primary focus will be fostering the creative independence of talented new artists emerging from South Africa, and providing retail opportunities for these designers within a global consumer-base. We want to provide the international fashion community with a glimpse into the unique and innovative nature of African design and creativity,” says Sizwe Nzimande, spokesperson for African Fashion International.
Every year, MBFWJ attracts masses of fashion entrepreneurs, buyers, bloggers, industry professionals, and local and international media to preview the looks that will define the bright future of design, and the business of fashion on the continent.
