Africa Fashion Week Amsterdam

Africa Fashion Week Amsterdam is organizing a series of unique shows featuring contemporary African fashion, art and design for an international audience starting on the 24th of September. Models from various countries in and outside Africa will parade the runway with engaging, colourful and well patterned garments from various designers as if it were a tale. The audience should also expect art exhibitions such as paintings, sculptures, nude fashion art. Performances by artists like Kas Beats, Miss Bess, Drey Goldnheads, Princess Bridgette and many more solo artist. Business minded visitors may want to ask for the VIP Networking Area (VIP ONLY). That is where the business goes down in style

The program

There are three catwalk shows on the agenda. Thursday August 25th is the platform for emerging talent. A number of young designers get the opportunity to show their creations to the public. On Friday, August 26st designers will show their latest men’s collections. AFWA ends in style with the FINALÉ SHOW on Saturday August 27th. On every show day one guest will receive a special gift. Climax is the Diamond Ring on Saturday!

“We have made it our business to package designer’s participation a successful business and not just global entertainment consumption. If fashion week becomes entertainment and direct communication, what happens to the actual market, the selling that goes on in showrooms after the shows? The empowerment? Creating job opportunities through fashion? The support of edition in fashion and development of skills? The development of the African fashion industry? The Encouragement of Sustainability in products and design?”

“We aim to encourage and empower the youth, creating job opportunities through fashion, the development of the African fashion industry, the merge of the African and European market and last but not least, alleviate the lives of those suffering from extreme poverty, & encourage talent and handicraft. We are a platform to create Demand & Supply Internationally!” Says the Chief Executive Officer and Founder Miss Diana Tambe.
