#AFWL2017 Africa Fashion Week London 2017

#AFWL2017 Africa Fashion Week London is Europe’s largest annual fashion event promoting and nurturing African and African-inspired design talent.


Using a collaborative catwalk, exhibition and business development programme, Africa Fashion Week London is a social enterprise that has led the way in transforming the perception of Africa’s emerging design talent and apparel industry in the international scene.

Von Ronke Ademiluvi im Jahr 2011 gegründet, ist die Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) das größte jährliche Modeevent Europas, das die afrikanischen und Afrika-inspirierten Designtalente fördert und unterstützt. Durch einen gemeinsamen Catwalk, eine gemeinsame Aus-stellung und ein gemeinsames Geschäftsentwicklungsprogamm ist die AFWL ein soziales Unter-nehmen, das den Weg gebahnt hat für die Wahrnehmungsveränderung des aufkommenden Designtalents Afrikas und der Bekleidungsindustrie auf der internationalen Bühne.

With a core team of experienced fashion industry experts and business professionals, Africa Fashion Week London is committed to creating a platform to support African designers while building a sustainable business that is globally recognised and promotes social, environmental and economic change in Africa.

Mit einem Kernteam aus erfahrenen Experten für industriell gefertigte Mode und professionellen Geschäftsleuten hat sich die AFWL verpflichtet, eine Plattform zu schaffen für die Unterstützung afrikanischer Designer bei gleichzeitigem Aufbau nachhaltiger Geschäfte, die weltweit anerkannt sind und die den sozialen, ökologischen und wirtschaftlichen Wandel in Afrika fördern.

Es wird mehr als 800 Designer und Aussteller aus Afrika und der weltweiten Diaspora über 70.000 Besuchern vorgestellt.

#AFWL2017 Venue

The classic Freemasons’ Hall will be the backdrop of Africa Fashion Week London 2017. Built between 1927 and 1933, it is an homage to the Art Deco era.

Freemason’s Hall is already venue to LFW’s off schedule shows, Fashion Scout; but set against the ornate interior, #AFWL2017 will be at home inside the the stunning style of the Grand Temple space, the Vestibules and Foyers.

Die klassische Freemason’s Hall wird die Kulisse der Africa Fashion Week London 2017 sein. Zwischen 1927 und 1933 erbaut, ist sie eine Hommage an die Art-Deco-Ära.

Freemason’s Hall ist bereits Veranstaltungsort von Fashion Scout, der Modeschauen außerhalb der London Fashion Week. Da AFWL jedoch gegen die überladene Ausstattung ist, wird sie sich im atemberaubenden Stil des Grand Tempels mit seinem Raum, dem Vorraum und den Foyers einrichten.

Love you guys!
Hope you’re having a nice weekend!
Until next time!
From England with love!
