National Telecoms Company, Globacom, has been announced as the exclusive telecommunications partner and sponsor of the second edition of African Fashion Week Nigeria (AFWN) scheduled to hold in Lagos between 23rd and 24th May, 2015.
The two-day sublime fashion spectacles, which will be held at the Oceanview Marquee and the Convention Centre of Eko Hotel and Suites, are expected to provide veritable platforms for promoting made-in-Nigeria designs whilst creating visibility and awareness for indigent designers.
The shows will, in addition, provide a forum for promoting the work of African and African-inspired designers and fine artists globally.
In a joint press statement on Sunday in Lagos, Globacom and AFWN noted that the sponsorship of the second edition of AFWN by the telecommunications colossus further demonstrated Globacom’s commitment to the promotion and sustenance of African arts and culture.
“Globacom identifies with the objective of the organisers to promote emerging Nigerian designers, within and outside the shores of the country. We will continue to be associated with the development of Nigeria and Africa’s rich culture and its works of art,” the statement added.
The company describes the African Fashion Week Nigeria as an opportunity to showcase Africa’s rich cultural heritage and Nigeria’s fast rising fashion industry. It called on Nigeria’s fashion connoisseurs and others who wish to be abreast of fashion trends in the country to troop out in large number to the venue of the event to experience the best of Nigerian designs on the runway.
African Fashion Week Nigeria is a new initiative to support, showcase and promote Nigeria’s most innovative fashion talents in a bid to move Nigerian fashion forward through the development of fashion businesses. AFWN posits that the shows will enhance the reputation of Nigeria’s rising stars in the fashion industry and will be as significant as Africa Fashion Week London.
The organisers of the shows also said a series of activities and performances have been lined up to make the 2015 African Fashion Week Nigeria an exciting and memorable event with over 100 top designers from the continent and beyond expected to showcase their designs and products during the show.
