Precious Moloi-Motsepe, African Fashion International (AFI) founder-CEO and a leading businesswoman-cum-philanthropist in South Africa, recently received the Fashion 4 Development’s inaugural Franca Sozzani Award at the United Nations in New York for her efforts to promote African designers through her firm and support the empowerment of disadvantaged women.

The award commemorates late Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia. Fashion 4 Development (F4D) is a private sector global platform founded by Evie Evangelou in January 2011 in support of the UN millennium development goals and the UN’s ‘Every Woman, Every Child’ initiative spearheaded by former secretary-general Ban Ki Moon.

F4D supports programmes in 20 countries using fashion and the textile industry to advance economic and social development and preserve culture.

Moloi-Motsepe was nominated for the award by Franca Sozzani’s son, the Emmy Award-nominated film director Francesco Carrozzini and Norway’s crown princess Mette-Marit on behalf of F4D, a South African news website reported.

She received the award on September 19 by F4D Evangelou and fashion designer Livia Firth when the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly is under way. (DS)
