“AFI FASTRACK is a young designer incubation initiative, founded in 2011 by African Fashion International (AFI). The programme aims to develop the new generation of fashion design talent.
The goal of AFI FASTRACK is to help graduate designers heighten their creative thinking and tighten their aesthetics & points of view; the mission is also to guide these designers in bridging the gap between the creative and the commercial side of the fashion industry, becoming a catalyst for sustainable fashion businesses”.
