The Venue
The classic Freemasons’ Hall will be the backdrop of Africa Fashion Week London 2017.  Built between 1927 and 1933, it is an homage to the Art Deco era.

Freemason’s Hall is already venue to LFW’s off schedule shows, Fashion Scout; but set against the ornate interior, AFWL will be at home inside the the stunning style of the Grand Temple space, the Vestibules and Foyers.

Expect to see Designer Exhibitions offering ‘straight off the catwalk’ bargains, jewellery, accessories and footwear.
