AFRICA INTERNATIONAL FASHION WEEK 2015 – AIFW 2015

Africa International Fashion Week is in her second season. Backed by some of the biggest players in the fashion industry, this fashion week is set to bring footprints of global fashion heavy weights into new interactions in the fashion and retailscape in Africa. Designers, Photographers, Buyers and other practitioners have pitched in; stimulating interest from the market and companies that are interested in playing in Africa or reaching their audience on the continent.

Africa International Fashion Week partnered with Vogue Italia for the first ever “Vogue Talent for Africa”. The winner – Maxhosa by Laduma is a young South African who since winning this project has been seen at various events in the world, most recently at the Vogue Talent in Milan and Dubai respectively.

In 2016, we are partnering again with Vogue and we are looking forward to it with great expectations. The best thing about 2015 is that Delta State in conjunction with Desopadec (Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission) has come on board as the Title sponsor of this great event. Also Desopadec has concluded arrangement to set up what is set to be Africa’s biggest factory in the heart of the Niger Delta. Desopadec is known to engage the youths positively and coming into the business of fashion will give more opportunities to the youths in that region. The AGOA (African Growth Opportunity Act) that President Clinton started has not being utilized in Nigeria. However, President Obama has renewed the AGOA to 2025 and this is the opportunity of a lifetime and Nigeria especially Delta State has seized the opportunity to position herself as the front runner in the business of fashion. Already, works are in top gear to actualize this dream. Nimasa (Nigerian Maritime and Safety Agency) also has come on board as a sponsor. These are agencies that see social corporate responsibilities as the way forward. Studio24 remains one of our greatest and constant partners.

Our media partners include Allure Vanguard, Complete Fashion, Supreme Magazine, Fashion One, Vogue Inspire Magazine, LindaIkeji Blog and many more.

Also Nigeria’s Next Super Model (NNSM) which is in the ninth season will be giving away the ninth car at Oriental Hotel. This year, we have added the male version since after landing the franchise of the Fresh Faces Barcelona in Africa (www.modelmanagement.com/casting/fresh-faces-africa-2015 ). The male and female winner will be representing Nigeria at the world finals of fresh faces. Past and present winners of the NNSM have been seen on the runways around the world. Last year winner – Queen Onyemaechi was the only black girl picked by Vogue Italia last season as one of the future top models of the world “the ones to watch”. She also shot for ISEY MIYAKI for vogue Italia. We are looking forward to a great event this year and hope that the tenth anniversary will be the one to watch.
