Africa Fashion Week London

Africa Fashion Week 2018 returns from 10 August for two days. This 2018 event returns to Freemason’s Hall London and is expected to match previous events with an array of emerging and established designers tipped to showcase their wares. 

This year, there will be representation from Uganda, Nigeria, Morocco, Ghana, Namibia, Congo, Angola, Zimbabwe,, Tanzania; as well as from The Netherlands, UK, USA and Italy.

Since 2011, AFWL has hosted 8 catwalk events and contributed expertise to at least 10 more events produced by 3rd parties such as The Mayor of London’s Black History Month celebrations.

We have also showcased over 800 emerging designers & exhibitors, from Africa, Europe and America, to almost 70,000 visitors including buyers, retailers, influential industry professionals, and the media and is now a highlight on the annual fashion calendar.

Make sure you get your tickets here and check out some my thoughts of previous events. To keep tabs on other community events, follow What’s on in Your Community.
