Africa’s premier fashion show, ARISE Fashion Week, has unveiled the 30 under 30 fashion designers who will be competing for $500,000 in prize money.
The fashion show, which is set to deliver one of its most exciting line-ups to date, has a list of designers from Nigeria, other parts of Africa and Europe.
The list boasts fresh talent alongside some acclaimed international names in fashion.
The event holds at Lakowe Beach and Golf Resort, Lagos from December 5 to 12, with Live shows from December 9 to 12.
