Still ranking the most prominent fashion show in Africa, ARISE FASHION Week 2018 is where the global fashion elite will once again converge and where international and African fashion collections are shown to a global audience of buyers, financiers, retailers and media.
The AFW runway 2018 event in Lagos will feature 45 designers from 14 countries such as South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Ivory coast, Senegal, France, Morocco, the united kingdom, the united states, the Caribbean and Nigeria.
