Heineken Lagos Fashion Week is calling for interns to apply on or before October, 15th 2019. This is to help groom young talents in the art with respect to the upcoming Lagos Fashion Week slated to hold at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel from October 23rd to 26th, 2019.
The theme for this year’s Lagos Fashion Week, #BeyondCreativity, is hinged on Fashion Focus Talks across four African cities — Lagos, Abuja, Kigali and Dakar — and is demonstrated with the recently concluded Paris Showroom, thereby paving way for market opportunities for African designers. LFW19 focuses on moving the fashion conversation forward to a position of economic viability in the continent and seeks to engender impact beyond the runway.
To kick-start this year’s activity-filled calendar, a cocktail reception was held at Heineken House on October 4th, 2019. The official launch party had in attendance celebrities, designers and fashion enthusiasts alike.
Some of the activities to hold during LFW19 are Fashion Business Series (FBS), SheTrades Workshops, Afrexim Creative Academy Workshop, the Fashion & Culture Exchange Africa-Japan (FACE.A-J) Event, Runway Shows and the official #LagosFW after party.
The FBS Dinner will follow the previous year’s pattern which featured key voices in fashion in a gathering of industry stakeholders. Announcements for the speakers will be done soon.
SheTrades Commonwealth will host workshops targeting women entrepreneurs within the ITC SheTrades network on 21st and 22nd October. The workshops aim to further equip women-owned businesses with new skills to grow their various businesses and the tools for wealth creation.
On 25th and 26th October 2019, daytime workshops happening at Lagos Fashion Week tents and the Afrexim Bank’s Creative Africa Exchange Master class in partnership with Africa Development Bank (AFDB) will hold. The tents will be open for runway shows from 24th to 26th October, 6pm daily.
LFW19 will also feature a cross-cultural exchange and exhibition. Six emerging designers from Africa and Japan will participate in ‘Fashion & Culture Exchange Africa-Japan’ (FACE.A-J). The designers will be showcasing their designs at Rakuten Fashion Week, Tokyo and during Lagos Fashion Week. The FACE.A-J initiative is owned and managed by Awa’Tori with support from United Arrows, Japan to promote culture and creativity between Africa and Japan.
Get ready to view the new season’s collections from designers as they alongside other fashion experts, enthusiasts and media from across the continent and beyond, converge in Africa’s most populous city for Heineken Lagos Fashion Week 2019.
