AFWA is opgericht door Diana Tambe Blackpearl, een jonge ontwerpster afkomstig uit Kameroen, Afrika.
27-30 augustus in het KIT te Amsterdam
Last year, the 29th-31st of August saw a new type of fashion event in the Netherlands. This was home to the first ever Africa Fashion Week Amsterdam (AFWA), which consisted of a 3 day interactive celebration of fashion, culture, music and talent within the World Fashion Centre, Amsterdam. The event was hailed in the media as a great success, which saw thousands of visitors watch dozens of models glide down the runway in hundreds of African inspired or designed outfits to the delight and excitement of its audiences.
This year, with enhanced exposure, three Awards nominations, and funding, AFWA is looking to break existing records as the brand continues to grow in popularity within the media and community as a bench mark for promoting causes, uniting talents and breaking barriers within the community. The event will take place for the second year from 28th to 30th August at the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT).
