Mark your calendars everyone…Africa Fashion Week is coming to Montreal for the very first time this year! You may want to clear your schedules for this, particularly Friday, June 12th and Saturday, June 13th as of 7pm when this event will take place at Théâtre Paradoxe on 5959 Monk Blvd, Montreal. Africa Fashion Week Montreal (AFWMTL) will certainly prove to be an event you won’t want to miss.
This unique yet flamboyant annual event aims to celebrate African and Caribbean culture through exceptional talents of designers and architects who will be showcasing their creative looks. The fashion industry is so ready for this new era of colourful patterns, prints and African fabrics and it has been for the past few years. See for yourself…
AFWMTL will be captured on The Nikki Clarke Show in Ontario and will be live on the web. It is presented by a fabulous (leading) team of diverse women who share prowess in fashion, coordination, direction and design. Kama St-Juste leads this project alongside Béatrice Clervoix, Liette Clervoix et Médina Diabagate in an effort to show Montreal as a prenominate city where fashion resides. This event will feature 8 renowned and emerging designers such as Asikere Afana, Tufafi Fashion and Korto Momolu to name a few. Check out some of their fabulous collections…

Who else is excited to witness such amazing talent on a runway? I know I am.
A portion of the profits will go towards the A.C.T.I.O.N Foundation, a non-profit organization (sponsored by the humourist Rachid Badouri) which pilots various social programs, one of which encourages young artists and designers.
Happy Tuesday! ❤️xo
