African Fashion International (AFI), has begun a co-ordinated approach, with 21 designers, to manufacture and design face masks specifically recommended by the Department of Trade and Industry for the South African public.

This program will enable business continuity and operations for South African designers, and help them pay their staff. Some of the local designers who have rallied for this initiative and designed masks, include Imprint, Amanda May, Dax Martin, Bulbulia, Loin Cloth & Ashes, Shweshwekini, and Gavin Rajah. 

Some of these designers are also selling face masks outside of this initiative, but still towards achieving the same goal.

African Fashion International (AFI), invites the public to donate face masks to the needy. Donations start from 10 masks.

Each mask is quality approved and reusable, providing protection and saving additional costs. Face masks are available at R25 each. 

AFI designers unite for face mask relief

You can donate a face mask to the Gift of the Givers Foundation, the South African Red Cross Society (SARCS), Doctors without Borders, and the Salvation Army.
