African Fashion International (AFI) announced that the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has moved to The Watershed and North Wharf situated at the V&A Waterfront.
The fashion week will take place from 30 July to 01 August 2015 where the Spring and Summer collections will be showcased.
Located between the food market and the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront, the Watershed is the redeveloped and facelifted incarnation of the iconic Blue Shed Craft Market and Wellness Centre.
Its recent revamp has created a beautiful, serene space that is home to some of South Africa’s most beautiful and innovative textiles, fashion and jewellery, creating the perfect backdrop for the country’s leading fashion showcase.
The Watershed will host the hospitality and ticketing elements of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town, while the nearby North Wharf will house the ramp for the Spring and Summer fashion collections that will be presented by more than 30 established and emerging South African designers.
A stellar line-up of local and international modelling talent will introduce the collections to guests flocking to be a part of the much anticipated event.
Guests can look forward to a magnificent marquee setting on the North Wharf that will perfectly display each designer’s collections as they are viewed by the local and international fashion industry and media, as well as fashion enthusiasts from all over the world.
