Africa Fashion Week Nigeria a social enterprise that provides a platform to help promote Nigerian and brands through worldwide visibility and distribution and manufacturing. We focus on empowerment, creating jobs and supporting education and skills training in fashion.
The first edition launched in May 2014, was created by Ronke Ademiluyi, also the founder of Africa Fashion Week London.and her Team. The core mission of Africa Fashion Week Nigeria is empowerment through fashion, to create jobs through fashion, to support education in fashion and develop skills training and capacity development in the fashion industry.
To see fashion in Nigeria grow and be recognized as a multi-million pound industry as it is in the UK, We hope that it contributes to GDP like in the UK where fashion is a million pond industry.
Our core aim is providing visibility platforms for new talent, who would otherwise not have the means to gather attention and awareness on their own.
Our platforms allow the global audience to see what Nigerian and African Fashion is all about, and then they can contribute to its growth as we believe that for creativity to grow there needs to be a platform that supports and contributes to its growth.
We have plans to open a fashion hub in Nigeria, to host student workshops, provide internships, scholarships and short coursework to develop talent and also help designers produce their fashion collection and build their own design business.
