Africa Fashion Week New York (AFWNY) is a luxury multi-day event that will include runway shows, vendor exhibition, and industry networking events with the sole purpose of raising awareness of African fashion and entertainment professionals all over the world. More specifically, buyers and industry influentials will be previewed to African designers while over 2,000+ audience members will also witness the excitement and be a part of the cause.

Adirée, producer of AFWNY, showcases luxury and mass African-owned fashion brands through runway shows, exhibitions and videos. AFWNY includes runway shows hosting 21+ designers from various countries in Africa and those of the African diaspora, exhibitions, and industry networking events. Representing various countries in Africa, many designers from Africa creatively highlight personal culture within their designs-with or without the use of African prints.

AFWNY 2012 (July 12-18), is located in NYC’s financial district at 41 Broad Street, New York, NY 10004.
