Marvel's Avengers inspire runway fashions in South Africa

The Avengers took to the runway over the weekend at South African Fashion Week in 18 ready-to-wear looks inspired by Marvel's Age of Ultron.

It was the result of Marvel Fashion-Hero Search, an initiative launched in December by Disney and SA Fashion Week to find up-and-coming designers from across Africa to create men's and women's lines that draw upon Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and the Incredible Hulk. In the end, just six designers were selected to show.

“As fans the world over anticipate the release of the next chapter in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, we are thrilled not only to be celebrating the Avengers but also the immense talent that the designers have brought to the SA Fashion Week runway,” Deirdre King, head of marketing  for The Walt Disney Company Africa, said in a statement. ‘The Inspired by Marvel campaign truly showcase the timeless and universal appeal that these characters have,  whilst remaining relevant in since they first appeared in comic books almost 5 decades ago.”
