AFRICA FASHION WEEK LONDON PREPARES FOR A SUPERSONIC 2014 EDITION

With preparations already in full swing for
the 4th edition of Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) on the 7th-9th
August, the organizers of Africa Fashion Week London have announced
that they will also be hosting the first Africa Fashion Week Nigeria on
the 17th & 18th of May.

 Established in 2011, AFWL was borne out of the
urgent need to support young and emerging African inspired designers in the UK
and globally providing them with a professional and affordable showcasing
platform that enables them to create awareness, visibility and exposure for
themselves, a platform that celebrates their own kind of fashion sense and
themes.

The event is fast becoming the biggest African
inspired fashion event in the UK, combining runway and fashion exhibition shows
in three days of perfectly paced illuminating expos. AFWL as a platform has
hosted the creations of over 200 African and African inspired designers from
across the African continent and the Diaspora.

From the
success of the Africa Fashion Week London and the influx of creativity from
Nigerian designers presented during the past editions of AFWL, we decided to
host the Africa Fashion Week in Nigeria (AFWN) as there are still talented young
and emerging designers who have not been privileged with the opportunity to
showcase on an international platform.

 AFWN intends to provide the opportunity of
wide exposure to up & coming designers who have not been discovered, yet
have a lot of creativity to show the world. 
However for creativity to grow there needs to be a platform that
celebrates and supports it, hence contributing to its growth.

 Nigerian
designers are drawing their inspiration from years of cultural fashion history
and refitting it for modern-day life, creating apparel that can actually sell
at home and abroad.

AFRICA FASHION WEEK LONDON has also launched THE FIRST
REALITY TV SHOW FOR DESIGNERS IN NIGERIA  (A COMPETITION SERIES)

 A magnificent platform
for emerging designers, it is a talent hunt show, aimed at bringing together
various fashion designers from across the country to showcase the richness of
the Nigerian Fashion Culture and fabrics.

 Hundreds of young
designers turned up from different states in Nigeria for the NNTD auditions,
where they were narrowed down to 21 contestants who will be going into the NNTD
house. The winner goes home with prizes including an all expense paid trip to
showcase at AFWL 2014.
