Join us for the official book launch and exhibition opening to the public of the 21 YEARS of Fashion with South African Fashion Week at Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa.
South African Fashion Week: “This book is a permanent record that shares 21 years of fashion with those who know and appreciate fashion. It is a celebration of the fashion design talent we have in South Africa. The images were chosen by a panel of international and local fashion experts. Starting with Spring Summer 2018, it takes you back to our beginnings in 1997. We have included the front rows, social moments, our media, celebrities and audiences that have played such a vital role through the years.”
Senior Curator Erica de Greef: “The occasion marks the first dedicated fashion exhibition in the building to occupy the gallery, and sees a selection of 21 outfits chosen to reflect the creative talent of both iconic and emerging South African fashion designers who have shown with South African Fashion Week over the last 21 YEARS with its inception in 1997.”
