Disney partnered with SA Fashion Week to bring the Avengers-inspired fashions to the runway. In December they launched the Marvel Fashion-Hero Search asking designers from across Africa to submit a portfolio featuring 18 ready-to-wear men’s or women’s looks. From these entries, they chose six designers to show their work at SA Fashion Week: Rumbie by Rumbie’s Rumbidzai Muzofa, Ralfe’s Siyabonga Ntini, Kamanga Wear’s Christina Kabamba and Donna M’shanga, Amos Tranque, M4S’s Luiz Delaja, and Roman Handt.
