Last year, the 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 an 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 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 at an exclusive venue within Amsterdam.
´Many key figures from the Africa community have already confirmed their attendance such as award winning movie star Ramsey Nouah and several prominent business entrepreneurs. We are looking to break existing records and take the event to the next level, which is certainly developing´ Diana Tambe (Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AFWA) quoted.
