Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) is proposed as an annual event showcasing fashion mixing African culture, fashion, style and music. with London’s uniqueness and diversity. They will showcase designers who use African prints, textiles and fabrics on the catwalk with shows every hour and professes it to be ‘Your one stop shop for all kinds of African labels.’
They also expect ‘over 300 VIP guests from different African countries, over 100 exhibitors from UK and Africa, top international African fashion designers, emerging African designers and non African designers who use a lot of African prints/patterns in their work…and showcasing a lot of African models.’
Sounds like it could be a good one to showcase at.
Interesting. We look forward to see which designers present and above all to see which press turn up as that is the most important thing for new and settled designers. Above all…AFG will be there!
