Veteran actor Olu Jacobs has commended the organizers of the Africa Fashion Week Nigeria for creating a befitting platform showcasing the work of African designers and the vast tourism potential of the nation to the rest of the world.
Jacobs took time off his busy schedule at a movie location, to be part of AFWN 2017 pre-event photo shoot at the Tinubu Square, Lagos.
AFWN Founder Ronke Ademiluyi has also said, “We are putting everything in place towards an exceptional fashion experience. Every year, our key focus is the sustainable growth of the fashion industry. From the exhibitions, collections on the runway and everyone involved, we always ensure a grand package.”
The annual Africa Fashion Week Nigeria provides a vibrant platform for fashion buyers, exhibitors, fashion designers, models, photographers, celebrities and fashion writers. Industry observers describe it as the biggest meeting point for those who know and love fashion and style.
Africa Fashion Week Nigeria 2017 will take place between the 3rd and 4th of June at the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos. According to Ademiluyi, “The venue is symbolic. It is part of our rich cultural heritage, something the style world would be glad to see.”
