The African fashion industry is vastly rich and has begun to take its place in the world market. The Africa Fashion Week Nigeria, AFWN, was established to showcase talented fashion designers who remain largely unknown, for the purpose of further strengthening and developing the international competitiveness of Nigeria’s fashion industry.

According to organizers, this year AFWN is introducing the Education in Fashion Segment of the Fashion Week, “as most young designers don’t realize that there are so many different aspects to the fashion industry aside from the runway, red carpet or who wore it best”. The fashion seminar will be delivered by a Top Global Fashion Management Company that focuses on Brand Management and Retail Management and shares over 20 years’ experience working in Europe and the USA.

The theme for AFWN2015 is Showcasing our Cultural Heritage through Fashion and it is scheduled to hold on 23rd & 24th of May 2015. Venue of the event is the Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos. The event will also feature a photo competition for fashion lovers tagged: Evolution of Iro and Buba.
