“First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for believing we could break down these walls over the last year. But whatever you have heard, we haven’t done anything yet.” Miss Diana Tambe quotes.
“Designers are coming back, they know we are investing,” she said. “We are doing our outmost best putting them on the map meanwhile encouraging sustainability, not only in the African fashion market but in the European and Asian market.”
Ariel Emanuel said “When we look at the world, we see fashion, sports, movies, TV, books: They are all just different aspects of global entertainment consumption,” At AFWA we have made it our business to package designers’ participation a successful business and not just global entertainment consumption. If fashion week becomes entertainment and direct communication, what happens to the actual market, the selling that goes on in showrooms after the shows?
Besides these, AFWA went in 100 on detailed creativeness and developed a theme for its 3rd Edition: TOA, as seen on poster above.
