Fashion in Africa™

5–7 May 2006

The City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality (CTMM) and Tunsa (a business initiative between Tunisia and South Africa that promotes business, trade and tourism between these two countries) have embarked on a joint public-private partnership venture to establish Tshwane as the African fashion gateway to the rest of the world by uniting Africa through fashion and culture.

The project is geared to evolve into an annual initiative of African fashion and other cultural activities.


This prestigious event will be held over three days, and will entail a series of fashion shows by various handpicked designers from South Africa and Tunisia. The event will also include exhibitions, topical forums and workshops on the fashion and textile industries. Fashion in Africa™ will kick off with an exquisite gala event, flaunting the captivating designs of the winning designers in both categories of the Fashion in Africa™ competition. Before the fashion show, competitions will be held in both countries to select the best designs for inclusion in the project. A Golden Khomsa awards ceremony will take place in Tunisia for the Tunisian designers in March 2006 and the winning Tshwane designers will be presented with the Executive Mayor's Award for Fashion designers.
