We want to say a HUGE thank you to all designers, exhibitors, media partners, volunteers, models and Freemasons' Hall staff who supported and helped to make AFWL2018 an incredible success.

This year's show featured the latest trends and amazing African fashion collections from over 50 designers on the catwalk and 60 plus exhibitors worldwide.

Once again the Freemasons' Hall  in Covent Garden served as the event venue.  500 visitors for each show, the atmosphere was full of excitement and the catwalk was full of creative and inspirational talent.

Visitors were also able to shop the wonderful exclusive and artisan pieces from a a variety of boutique stalls before and after each show.

One final comment was from Senegalese Catwalk Designer and Exhibitor, Sarayaa, as she left was -"your organisation and show was on point and I am very impressed".

We are so thatnkful and increadibly grateful to everyone who came to support African fashion and we hope you will join us again to make 2019 even greater!
