Are you a fashion designer? Here’s an opportunity to showcase your works in the world’s fashion capital, Paris.
Legendary Gold Limited in partnership with the African Union and the city of Paris have announced that application for participation is now open for the Africa Fashion Reception 2015.
The official launch in 2013 brought together fashion designers, garment and textile manufacturers, fashion accessories and lifestyle producers from 16 countries. 2014 saw the participation of 24 countries. This year, the African Fashion Reception will gather fashion designers, First Ladies, fashion icons, Ambassadors, Ministers and Media from over 30 countries, in a celebration of cultural diversity expressed through the artistic fashion discipline, with the theme – ‘Africa is the new inspiration for global fashion’.
The African Fashion Reception will give each participating country a platform to promote its garment and lifestyle products, culture and tourism potential.
The event, which brings together the African Fashion Industry aims to build bridges by creating free trade and partnership among fashion practitioners throughout the African continent. It is also aimed at attracting global attention to Africa’s rich and diversified dress culture and expanding the potential power of fashion as a tool for fighting poverty in Africa by creating wealth through the empowerment of women and youths in the various fashion vocations.
