Cape Town – The Mercedes Benz Cape Town Fashion Week was postponed on Saturday after strong winds disrupted it for a third day.
This was after the Cape Town Cycle Tour was cancelled on March 12 due to winds approaching 50 km/h.
Event organisers, African Fashion International (AFI), said on Facebook that the fashion week would now be held from April 6-8.
“Following the advice of our engineering experts, we have made the executive decision to postpone [the event],” they said.
The fashion week’s first show was cancelled on Thursday after organisers said winds posed a safety risk.
On Friday, guests were asked to leave the venue by 18:20.
“The safety of our guests is our main concern,” event organisers said.
