Yemi Alade is 2016 AFWN, AFWL Brand Ambassador
Nigerian pop singer, Yemi Alade, has been unveiled as this year’s Africa Fashion Week Nigeria (AFWN) and Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) brand ambassador.
One of the aims of AFW is to promote beauty and style from Africa, both the creative and business side of fashion, while also discovering new exciting brands and striving to provide them with a platform to build and promote them so they meet international standards.
Founder of AFW, Ronke Ademiluyi, had this to say about the choice of Yemi Alade as their brand ambassador: “This year, we chose someone who embodies the true African woman. A strong intellectual and musically inclined woman, her music reflects what’s good, great and best about the motherland. We couldn’t have chosen anyone more suitable to be our ambassador”.
AFWN would be celebrating its third anniversary with yet another fashion show and exhibition from July 1 to July 3, 2016 with a host of upcoming and established designers. There would be five different shows, brand new designers that would showcase for the first time as well as new and existing designers getting the opportunity to break into the industry and gain a bigger platform and wider audience.
