CALLING ON DESIGNERS, MEDIA, SPONSORS FOR AFRICA FASHION WEEK NIGERIA 2016
We re-echo our good fortune, and invite you to partake in our annual revelry of fashion and style.
AFWN, (Africa Fashion Week Nigeria), our unique platform that celebrates the best of Africa, showcasing her creativity and colours to the world, bringing about positive vibes of all that’s wonderful, beautiful, stylish and creative about us. It is 3 years- and we remember with joy and fondness, warmth in our hearts and glints in our eyes, the first edition in 2014, when we debuted. It still seems like yesterday.
We are more than joyous that the stable is expanding gradually, from AFWL (Africa Fashion Week London) going to 6 years now and a colossal success (already tagged as the biggest platform in Europe for African inspired fashion), NNTD (Nigeria’s Next Top Designer) our platform that seeks to encourage creativity amongst student designers hitting the 2nd year (our last winner went on to win at the Music Meets Runway of 2014 and is right now in the USA building on her fashion career), we are gradually and more assuredly stamping out footmarks upon the sands of history by creating a platform for would be economic giants of the future (in the fashion industry).
This 3rd year edition calls for gratitude, especially to all that have made the years worthwhile.
This year’s edition of our annual fashion extravaganza is a salute to creativity and uniqueness, it would be a festival starting from Lagos, Nigeria as the hub in July of 2016 (AFWN 2016) and climaxing in London (a renowned world’s fashion capital) at the 6th edition of the AFWL at the Olympia, West Hall, Kensington.
We are celebrating the best of fashion, with a unique tag ‘Connecting Africa to the world’ it’s not just about being a big fish here, it’s about exploiting ones gift and launching it to the world. So we are connecting Lagos (Africa) to London (Europe/the World).
From Lagos to London, we would feature highly creative and very talented designers from all over Africa (Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Botswana, Uganda, Gambia etc) and the diaspora.
The Lagos event is slated for the Eko Hotel from July 1st- 3rd 2016. While the London event is slated for Sept, 2016.
All we require from you is your participation as a designer, partner, sponsor and we invite you to be a part of history.
