African Fashion and Design Week 2016 scheduled for October 7-9
This year’s edition of the African Fashion and Design Week is scheduled to come off from October 7 to October 9 in Lagos.
It will be at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos.
The African Fashion and Design Week 2016 will feature some of the best designers in Africa, including Nallem Clothing (Ghana), Gavin Rajah (South Africa), Sunny Rose (Nigeria), Weiz Dhurum Franklyn (Nigeria), and Mustafa Hassanali (Tanzania).
The organisers of the event, Blue Pear International Services, are introducing something new this year. There will be the Bluepear Raising Stars competition.
The competition aims to bring recognition to some innovative and talented young designers in Africa.
The 2016 edition of the event is the fifth and will be organised with the theme, ‘Be Inspired.’ The theme was chosen as a way to showcase “our uniqueness as Africans and the importance of appreciating our creativity and talent interpreted through various fashion looks because the world is watching how we do it.”
