Fashion lovers to be treated

Fashion Without Borders is back for its fifth installation and will be hosted over a two-day period from 6 to 7 September at the Park Inn Hotel, in Sandton. Only this time, the event will be complemented by 20 fashion designers and 40 models from across the African continent.

Themed My Africa, this year’s Fashion Without Borders will be a blend of new talent, emerging and established names, with a talent list that comprises the likes of an 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, “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.”

Kabisoso added that this event will highlight how current fashion trends are predicted by moods, behaviour and buying habits of a consumer at a particular time.
