Johannesburg, South Africa (November 03, 2022) – African Fashion International (AFI) is excited to announce the launch of the House of Nala by AFI store in Sandton City during AFI Fashion Week Joburg 2022.
The launch of the second House of Nala store also marks the celebration of 15 years of African Fashion International.
The House of Nala Sandton City will be open for retail from 17 November 2022 and will offer shoppers the opportunity to buy garments straight off the runway. The store will showcase pan-African designers and provide access to African luxury.
In 2021, in our quest for excellence in customer service, AFI launched the first physical store, House of Nala at The Leonardo in Sandton – as well as an e-commerce platform. There has been a demand for a second store, and we have answered the call.
“At AFI we have spent 15 years building the best, one-stop lifestyle platform for consumers looking for unique African fashion and guiding sellers reach a global, premium market. We remain an optimistic celebrator of Africa’s creative gifts,” says Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe.
“While many may see this year as doom and gloom for African designers and retailers, with the new House of Nala store, we are creating a safety net for all stakeholders allowing them to build and grow through a crisis instead of succumbing to it.”
With clothes, shoes and accessories produced in Africa, the House of Nala is the perfect place to find unique designs from across the continent. The launch of House of Nala Sandton City is a significant step forward in making African luxury more accessible.
AFI is committed to promoting African talent and celebrating the continent’s rich cultural heritage through fashion. We are proud to be able to bring African designers to a wider audience and help them build successful businesses.
AFI Fashion Week Joburg, taking place on 18-19 November 2022 at The Diamond Walk, will be a retail-focused fashion week, with designs available straight off the runway for purchase at the new House of Nala store in Sandton City.
