AFCW is a prestigious Fashion and Cultural franchise that comprises an amalgamation of creative thinkers ranging from fashion designers, models and textile distributors to artisans, culinarians and musicians. Our events combine African culture with tourism by fashioning a collective environment where likeminded individuals can network together to showcase their collaborative ventures.
Consequently, our events create a wealth of opportunities and joint partnerships with local businesses to promote African fashion trends and design aesthetics across multiple countries,that not only stimuli growth, but create a ‘community’ amongst trade professionals.
Our ethos is to educate the intensification of African Culture, Art, Music and Tourism by increasing global awareness and perception through international commerce trade by providing multiple platform mediums to promote intrinsic artistry through investment.
To expand African fashion, textile and international trade from mentorship programmes to ‘artistic innovation empowerment’ of brands, fashion houses, designers, models and craftsmen by highlighting Africa’s longstanding contribution to the fashion industry.
To change the global consciousness and perception of African culture by promoting its array of prosperous countries as desired destinations hosting Travel and Tourism, Fashion, Arts and Entertainment, Cuisine and Foreign exchange to increase economic enrichment.
AIMS & OBJECTIVE
