The 6th Edition of the Africa Fashion Week London

It all started in 2011 at the Gibson Hall, Bishopsgate in London. That 1st edition was a fantastic success.

The second edition was during the 2012 London Olympics. Our venue was the massive Spitalfields Market Hall, located at one of the renowned fashion spots in London. We had an unprecedented number of attendance of more than 20,000 visitors.

In 2013, we enlarged our coast and we moved to the Old Truman’s Brewery on Brick Lane in London, another notable fashion district. It was another great success and in that year we hosted the 1st of its kind Africa Arts and Fashion Banquet 2013, at one of the most prestigious venues in London – The Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, London.
