Africa Fashion week Nigeria AFWN 2015;Photos from Media Brunch Event

The African fashion week (AFWN) 2015 is gearing up to hold as it enters its second edition.

The Africa Fashion Week Nigeria, AFWN, was established in 2014 to showcase talented fashion designers who remain largely unknown, for the purpose of further strengthening and developing the international competitiveness of Nigeria's fashion industry.

The Africa Fashion Week Nigeria is a sister event to Africa Fashion Week London, the biggest fashion festival in the UK & Europe for African inspired fashion and owners of the first African concession store inside the plaza on Oxford Street, London, AFWN intends to become an incubator of young creative talents. 

The inaugural edition of Africa Fashion Week Nigeria, took place at the Eko Hotel in May 2014. The event showcased over 30 young & upcoming designers to a global audience. We also had veteran designer Abba Folawiyo, and established designers Zizi Cardow and Ade Bakare showcasing at the epoch making event, to further inspire the young designers. Patrons at the occasion were Chief Molade Okoya Thomas, Sen Daisy Danjuma, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, Princess Fifi Ejindu, and Chief Opral Benson. 

This year we are also introducing the Education in Fashion Segment of the Fashion Week, as most young designers don't realise that there are so many different aspects to the fashion industry aside from the runway, red carpet or who wore it best.

This education in fashion seminar will be delivered by a Top Global Fashion Management Company that focuses on Brand Management and Retail Management and shares over 20 years’ experience working in Europe and the USA.

Africa fashion week Nigeria was founded by Ms Ronke Ademiluyi, who is also the founder of Africa Fashion Week London and produced by Sola Oyebade of Mahogany productions.

AFWN recently held a media brunch event in preparedness for the big event in may.Notable designers like Adebayo Jones,King Hakbal, Souza Fashions were some of the designers who showcased at the Exlclusive media brunch and presentation.
