Our distinct journey as a proudly Nigerian, Proudly African and international brand began about 6 years ago in London.
What we started then as a small brand to satisfy a niche, has now gone on to become an award winning and very well recognized brand which is the biggest platform of its kind in Europe showcasing African designers and African inspired fashion. The popularity and success of the Africa Fashion Week London brand was what triggered us to bring the brand home to Nigeria.
discover young new exciting brands by providing a platform to build and promote them to an international standard.
Africa Fashion Week Nigeria promotes the beauty of Africa, from the creative side of fashion to the business of it. Ronke Ademiluyi founder of AFWN said ‘This year, we chose someone who embodies the true African woman. A strong, intellectual and musically inclined woman; her music reflects what’s good, what’s great and what’s best about the motherland. We couldn’t have chosen anyone more suitable to be our brand ambassador’.
