Africa fashion week Los Angeles this October!


Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles partners with Giving Back Charity and opens designer registration for 2013 season. When most people think of African fashion, Los Angeles isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind. Last October however, the Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles (AFWLA) team put together a compelling compilation of events that virtually brought Africa to Downtown Los Angeles. After a very successful premier event, AFWLA is back for it’s second season; Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles 2013 is scheduled to take place October 10th -13th. 

AFWLA has solidified itself as Los Angeles largest African fashion event, bringing diversity and culture to LA Fashion Week. Invited guests will be treated to runway shows featuring some of Africa’s new emerging talent as well as many great established brands, networking mixers, seminars, vendor exhibitions, and more.

AFWLA is dedicated to using their platform to raise awareness and impact a social change in Africa, this year they will be partnering with the Giving Back Charity as their non-profit beneficiary. A portion of funds will be donated to the charity to assist them with their mission of helping underprivileged African youth succeed through academic and athletic programs.
