Models, designers, and make-up artists, get ready for the latest entry in to Africa’s fashion showcase scene: Africa International Fashion Week (AIFW). The latest in a series of shows designed to elevate Africa’s fashion industry, AIFW is focused on broadening and growing the conversation about fashion on the continent. Based in Nigeria, it’ll be interesting to see if AIFW can replace the juggernaut that was Arise Fashion Week and continue the momentum started by that institution.

AIFW will take place on October 2 – 4. Registration is now open for designers and exhibitors on the AIFW website.
