Is this the most fashionable job no one can keep?

2014-07-27 13:13

While top local creations shimmered on the catwalks at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Cape Town, the talk in the corridors centred around Precious Motsepe-Moloi’s inability to hold on to her managers.

Industry gossips say that Motsepe-Moloi’s company, African Fashion International (AFI), changes top management faster than some people change their underwear.

Motsepe-Moloi?–?the wife of billionaire mining magnate Patrice Motsepe?–?worked for 20 years as a medical doctor before establishing AFI in 2008.

The company describes itself as “the leading fashion authority on the African continent” and hosts Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg, Cape Town and Africa.

Since it was established, the company has had seven bosses?–?at least.

One industry insider told City Press: “I would say, is this the most fashionable job that no one can keep?

“Everyone in the fashion industry is talking about it.”
