“Our Creative Resilience Forum (aka Fashion Business Forum) will take place upstairs in the Vestibule areas, bringing together some of the UK’s most influential actors and voices on issues such as fashion, design, culture, technology, commerce, fundraising, and ethics. The colorful hair exhibitions, demonstrations, and workshops on African decoration techniques are not to be missed.”
“This hybrid event will have an in-person display as well as live streaming, as well as digital activations throughout the venue incorporating designer films, brand advertising, and special support messages.”
“At 7 p.m., we’ll have a live VIP Catwalk Finale with top UK designers and a few international designers who were able to travel. We’re really excited to see our models again!”
“We hope that this mix of exclusive multimedia content from non-traveling designers and brand partners, as well as live talks, demonstrations, and showcases, will support our global roster of African designers – particularly those hardest hit by Covid-19 – and bring fashion and technology, sustainability, and heritage together.”
Africa Fashion Week London is one of the most important global presentations of African fashion and design, with a focus on young African-inspired designers.
