We create events, educational opportunities, and experiences that center the achievements of Afro-descendent and Afro-inspired designers, artists, and creatives. Past partners and collaborators include Apple Creative Studios, Vogue Italia, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, Festival DiverCity, and Meta, alongside a variety of universities and exhibition spaces.
Afro Fashion Week
Our flagship event. Every year with Afro Fashion Week Milano, we bring the latest trends in Afro fashion to the catwalks and showrooms of Italy’s fashion capital.
A showroom, production ecosystem, and mentorship program for Afro descedent designers working in Italy and worldwide, demonstrating that “Made in Italy” is not a question of colour but of know-how and talent.
Workshops & Courses
We collaborate regularly with universities and companies, including Apple Creative Studios, on innovative courses and workshops in fashion, art, and media that center a diversity of lived experience and perspectives.
Events & Exhibitions
Through design fairs, exhibits, and public spectacles we create moments of cultural exchange among Afro-descendent and Afro-inspired creatives and the broader public.
Afro Fashion Cameroon
In Cameroon, we work to strengthen the local capacity to leverage arts and culture as an engine for social and economic development. We have an ongoing partnership with LABA Douala university, where we lead fashion showcases, courses, and workshops for students and emerging professionals.
Experience the latest collections of our designers and rent pieces for high-profile events and photoshoots at the Afrofashion Showroom in Milan.
The Afrofashion Association is also a founding partner of the We Are Made in Italy (WAMI) initiative, alongside designers Stella Jean and Edward Buchanan, with the collaboration of La Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana.
