On 30 September 2022, in celebration of Heritage Month, the University of Cape Town (UCT) SRC AfriFund held a fundraising fashion show to assist African international students who face possible financial exclusion with the necessary funds to pay off their tuition fee debt so that they can continue with their studies.

The show centred around pan-Africanist themes with an emphasis on environmental sustainability and social activism. Among the designs featured were that of Imprint ZA and David Tlale.

The event was held in conjunction with Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe’s African Fashion International and supported by various stakeholders, including the UCT Graduate School of Business (UCT GSB), Protea Hotel Marriot Cape Town, Topco Models and UCT’s International Academic Programmes Office.
