Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) and international fashion and lifestyle magazine FAB are delighted to announce their partnership in the run up to this year’s edition of AFWL scheduled to be held at London Spitalfields Market on 3rd and 4th August 2012.
Following the positive reception for last year’s event which attracted over 4000 visitors over two days, in a bid to make this year’s edition even more attractive to guests, designers and buyers alike, AFWL has not only relocated to Spitalfields which boasts a venue able to cater for 10,000 guests but also forged a partnership with one of the leading African fashion publications FAB.
“We are delighted to have on board a publication which does not only support and showcase African fashion and lifestyle globally but also believes in creating a platform for African designers from the Continent and the diaspora beyond its pages and works in conjunction with other African and mainstream media to promote African fashion events,” said Ronke Ademiluyi, founder and CEO of Africa Fashion Week London, of the partnership.
Passionate about showcasing and celebrating the best of African fashion, international fashion and lifestyle quarterly FAB Magazine is keen to lend media support to ensure the ultimate success of this year’s event.
“We are delighted to come on board as media partners and work towards making this year’s edition of AFWL even better than last year. As a publication which has consistently supported African fashion from the continent and the diaspora, we are excited about these two days which will give the London audience during one of the busiest summers the capital is likely to see a feel for African fashion,” said FAB Magazine Editor-in-Chief Sinem Bilen-Onabanjo.
The two-day event, which will see 50 international designers of African descent showcasing and exhibiting their work is set to attract 10,000 visitors each day and be the biggest fashion extravaganza to add pizzazz and style to the summer of Olympics.
