Africa Fashion Week Nigeria is a social enterprise that provides a platform to help promote Nigerian and brands through worldwide visibility and distribution and manufacturing. We focus on empowerment, creating jobs and supporting education and skills training in fashion.

The first edition launched in May 2014, was created by Ronke Ademiluyi, also the founder of Africa Fashion Week London.. The core mission of Africa Fashion Week Nigeria is empowerment through fashion, to create jobs through fashion, to support education in fashion and develop skills training and capacity development in the fashion industry.

To see fashion in Nigeria grow and be recognized as a multi-million pound industry as it is in the UK, We hope that it contributes to GDP like in the UK where fashion is a million pond industry.

The core aim of the fashion week is to provide platforms for new/emerging talent, who would otherwise not have the means to gather attention and awareness on their own.
