ABOUT US

WE BREATHE INNOVATION AND CULTURE

Africa Fashion Week Brasil is part of the African circuit
Fashion Week London and African Fashion Week Nigeria founded
by Queen Ronke in 2011 and is in its 13th edition.

Fashion has been the platform to show where design
African and its diversity has stood out in the diaspora
Africa, in response to a repressed demand of this
portion of society that seeks an identity with its style
of life in synergy with their ancestry.

Africa Fashion Week (AFW) is one of the pillars to supply this
gap and project African stylization, through the encouragement and
promoting new designers who want exposure and don’t have
resources to present your collections and your
work.

The event also brings together renowned designers promoting
interaction between generations, activation of brands, workshops of
industry innovation, B2B, B2C, export, import and meeting
private with investors.

AFWB is a tool to combat STRUCTURAL RACISM that still keeps the fashion market Eurocentric.

“The main focus is to use the fashion as an instrument of sustainability and social change."
