“From a database of over 100 agencies, through a stringent casting process, the top models from Africa and around the world have been shortlisted for designers’ ultimate selection. For MBFWAfrica 2014, AFI looked for a strong editorial look, charisma, presence, and the ability to translate a range of different designer’s style aesthetics; from couture to ready-to-wear. We are also constantly on the lookout for exciting new breakthrough faces,” says AFI Technical Director, Deon Redman.

Fresh faces to be on the lookout for are Congolese beauty, Gaelle Kibikonda; ELITE Model Look South Africa 2013 finalists, Matachley Salmon and Bianca Raubenheimer; and male models, Arshad Dean, Benito van Leeuwen, Thomas Zalousmis, Marcus Karstens, and NK Mjweni.

These and other exceptional models will walk the runway in the latest collections from over 30 of Africa’s foremost established and emerging designers – including David Tlale, LaurenceAirline, MaXhosa by Laduma, Mai Atafo and Marianne Fassler – in 16 shows over four days at MBFWAfrica 2014,
