This week Clutch is on location in South Africa for ARISE Cape Town Fashion Week (CTFW). CTFW, one of Africa’s largest gatherings of fashion talent, has grown into a premiere “new world” fashion week providing an international platform for designers from across sub-Saharan Africa. The Graduate Show will launch the season on Thursday focusing on young designers and presented in conjunction with the Cape Town Fashion Council. Established men’s and women’s designers will take the stage on Friday, while Saturday brings the weekend to a climax with elegant daywear and dazzling evening pieces. In total, thirteen collections will be presented ranging from emerging designers to industry heavy weights. CTFW is co-produced by African Fashion International, organizers of Joburg, Durban and ARISE Africa Fashion Weeks – and ARISE Magazine — the world’s first magazine on global African culture and style.
