Attention to African fashion is ever-increasing – as evident by the V&A Museum’s recent African Fashion exhibition, which featured both historical and modern pieces from various African creatives in this sector.
“We need celebrate and honour people who contribute African fashion,” says Rebecca Fynn, the founder of African Fashion Awards. This award show aims to honour not only clothing designers, but photographers, make up artists, models, and more.
African Fashion Awards will host their 2nd annual award show on Friday, 28th Oct 2022 at the prestigious Freemasons’ Hall, 60 Great Queen St, London WC2B 5AZ. Each category will be judged by a panel of professionals who will select a number of finalists for the ceremony.
A lot of people think African fashion equals Ankara, bright colours and lots of beads – but this isn’t always the case.
“We honour creatives from Africa and who are part of the African diaspora, whether they work with traditional African materials or not.”
“The aim of the awards is to shine a spotlight onto the most promising African fashion creatives… especially creatives whose full potential has been thus far unrealized.”
Tickets are available here and start from £55.
