Cape's blusterous winds too risky for the Mercedez Benz fashion week

Several shows of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town 2017 which opened on Thursday evening at Camps Bay Sports Club had to be postponed due to the gusting winds.

African Fashion International’s head of fashion, Bryan Ramkilawan says the safety of their guests is of paramount importance.

He says they are working on contingency plans for Saturday night show, which is their last show.

The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is one of the biggest annual events in the local fashion industry hosted by the fashion giant African Fashion International (AFI).

Ramkilawan says any changes to the schedule will be communicated to ticket holders as soon as a decision is made.
