“Our passion is still consistently showcasing top talent in the fashion industry. Soweto and South Africa are alive with creativity, with many designers longing to grow their market, and that’s what we are all about.
“Showcasing ensures brand relevance. Big international brands across the globe still showcase no matter how much their net worth is, they are still looking to keep and grow their market. We need to get back on the global map and global fashion conversations like Nigeria has.”Stephen Manzini, founder of Soweto Fashion Week.
“Soweto Fashion Week does not only place the South African fashion, beauty and modelling industries on the stage, but it places our world class facilities for the world to see what more can be done in a Theatre space. It showcases our contribution to this immensely growing industry. As we sit at the heart of the most famous township, we are proud to be a part of this force promoting the work of young black designers from different townships, as well as those from urban areas and abroad,”said Vincent Motau-Soweto Theatre General Manager.
