As the world continues to unlock its social doors after a year’s hiatus owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, organisers of the annual Africa Fashion Week Nigeria (AFWN) will be collaborating with the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) to return this year with a most spectacular event.

Focused on promoting indigenous emerging and established brands to international buyers, the AFWN is also reputed for bringing together the most promising, talented, and recognised fashion designers and brands from across Nigeria and Africa to showcase the latest trends and products to a large and diverse audience of consumers, industry enthusiasts, and the press.

This year’s event is billed to hold on Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th of December at the Ojaja Hall, Ife Grand Resort, Ile Ife, Nigeria, will have the Chairman of the Adire Oodua Textile Hub, His Imperial Majesty Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II Ooni of Ife, launch first of its kind Adire Mobile Boutique – Adire on wheels.

The event will also be featuring exciting runway shows, fashion talks, adire oodua workshop and exhibitions.

The theme for this year; “The Impact of Indigenous Fabrics and Tourism to the Nigerian Economy”, Ademiluyi explained, is pivotal to the essence of the brand, in its continuous effort to reviving the decline of local textile industries in Nigeria, hence the collaboration this year with NTDC Tour Nigeria.

Founded by Princess Ronke Ademiluyi, with the aim of promoting home grown brands, while preserving African culture, AFWN over the years has become not only a top-rated platform for fashion design, ready-to-wear, accessories, styling, and other new designs in the country, but also a world renowned platform for promoting brands, displaying originality and broadcasting fashion trends.
