On Thursday, August 15, 2013 to Sunday, August 18, 2013 African Fashion Week Toronto will host its 1st annual fashion week at The Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, located at 6 Garamond court, Toronto. This is going to be a fun-filled weekend for all, and since our mission is to promote diversity in Fashion, we invite people of all nationalities to join us.

African Fashion Week Toronto is a platform for existing and emerging designers inspired by African culture and design. AFWT is designed to attract, entertain, and educate an audience on everything African.

AFWT will define style, class, music, and arts, along with our mission to merge the prestigious fashion industry with some of the top elite designers influenced by the African culture and the community at large. AFWT have planned a series of city-wide events that will enhance diversity, public awareness, image and involvement of African Fashion within our local, national and international communities.

The African population is one of the largest and fastest growing demographics in Canada especially within Ontario. The influence of African culture (fashion, art, music and food) can been seen in many mainstream brands and we feel that Toronto is the natural next step in this progression given the growing popularity of African focused festivals in the heart of this city.

Our team of consultants are putting together a great line up of speakers for the Fashion Africa seminar we will bring to Toronto as part of their Africa Fashion Week. We are excited about the people from Africa’s textile industry who will be coming and encourage you to join us on the day.

 

Schedule of Events 

The anticipated schedule for this annual event will include:

 Fierce runway shows

 Student Design competitions

 Hands-on workshops

 Informative seminars – presented by ourselves Africa Fashion Guide – (info to follow) 

 Fanciful exhibits & Multicultural vendors

 Festive meet-n-greet parties

AFWT will play host to local and international celebrities, presenters, top models, entertainers and most importantly the existing and emerging designers from Canada and around the world. African Fashion Week Toronto will leave an indelible impression on every one who attends.
