ARISE Fashion Week (AFW 2018), the synonym for “Africa Rising”, is back this week from March 30th to April 2nd at the Lagos Continental Hotel (formerly known as the Intercontinental Hotel) to showcase the best and brightest fashion designers from around the world.

ARISE, which was birthed 11 years ago, has helped to put Nigeria firmly on the global fashion map, showcasing and promoting African designers on the runways of the world, from London’s famous Royal Albert Hall, to Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, to the legendary triple appearance during New York’s iconic Fashion Week, to Lagos, to Johannesburg, to Cape Town and Paris.

The AFW runway has seen global fashion icons and leading models such as Naomi Campbell, Alek Wek, Liya Kebede, Oluchi Orlandi, Grace Bol, Georgie Badiel, Millen Magese, showcase the best of Africa.

The event has also seen internationally acclaimed designers such as Gavin Rajah, Ozwald Boateng, David Tlale, LaQuan Smith, Lanre DaSilva, DEOLA, Jewel By Lisa, Ituen Basi, Odio Mimonet and more fly the African flag.

The AFW runway 2018 event in Lagos will feature over 45 designers from 15 countries (South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal, France, Morocco, the United Kingdom, the United States, the Caribbean and Nigeria).
