FASHION WITHOUT BORDERS RETURNS TO SOUTH AFRICA

Fashion Without Borders’ fifth installation is bringing 20 fashion designers and 40 models from across the continent to join the likes of South African designers like 11-year-old Ethan Mokhele, Kele Foko, Iman Mtshali, Aman Chamane and many others in Sandton in an effort to raise awareness about local fashion consumption.

This year’s Africa’s Fashion and lifestyle movement will be hosted over a two-day period from Friday, 06 September 2019 to Saturday, 07 September 2019 at the Park Inn Hotel, in Sandton.

‘Themed My Africa’ for this year’s Fashion Without Borders will feature a blend of new talent, emerging and established names. These talents include the likes of 11-year-old fashion designer; Ethan Mokhele (South Africa), Kele Foko (South Africa), Nivaldo Thierry (Mozambique) and Kofi Asante (Ghana), Kaelo Godirwang (Botswana), Iman Mtshali (South Africa), Aline (DRC), Aman Chamane (South Africa), Anslem Agwoko (Nigeria), Sane Ratlhogo (South Africa), Tumane Thabane (Lesotho), Bismark Nimoh Poku (Ghana), Cathy Mbemba (DRC), Maatla Matlhabe (Botswana), Izak JD and Claudine Uys (South Africa).

Serge Kabisoso, Creative Director and Show Producer said that Fashion Without Borders says they want to raise awareness with this campaign Themed My Africa.

“Part of our aim is to enable the 20 fashion designers and 40 Models to take centre stage and subsequently showcase their interpretation of fashion design in the African continent, in an effort to raise awareness about local fashion consumption,”

“This event will highlight how current fashion trends are predicted by moods, behaviour and buying habits of a consumer at a particular time.”

Fashion Without Borders is more than just a fashion show, but also a lifestyle event that includes pop-up stalls, industry-related workshops and opportunities that will allow patrons to interact with both local and Southern African Development Community region designers.
