Pop in to the Fashion4Africa Pop Up
A showcase of African fashion, entrepreneurship and creativity will descend on north London’s fashion village in Finsbury Park on Saturday 28th September to mark the launch of the Fashion4Africa Pop Up.
The event will feature clothes from brands including Massassi Batique, beauty products from Karen Messam, as well as a range of accessories, health products, books and music from emerging and established African entrepreneurs.
This year’s theme centres around cultural identity and how our identity is shaped by the clothes we wear. Organised by ANEMP & Co Solutions, the event will also include industry workshops, sample giveaways from designers and retail discounts.
The Fashion4Africa Pop Up is now in its third year and is a precursor to the Fashion4Africa designer and model competition, which will be staged on Saturday 26th October. Both events are the brainchild of British-Gambian founder Anna Njie and are vehicles to train mentor and develop the next generation of Africans on home soil and in the Diaspora.
“The Pop Up and the Fashion4Africa showcase are more than just opportunities to show off Africa’s creativity in fashion,” said Anna. “It is driven by a desire to mobilise young Africans in the Diaspora to look towards Africa for inspiration, collaboration and creativity. We are passionate about passing the knowledge on to the next generation but also creating pathways for greater collaboration between Africans on the continent and those in the Diaspora. These events provide a platform for showcasing the amazing potential within the modern African textiles industries, African fashion, culture music and arts from the African continent.”
Doors to the fashion village at the London Fashion Centre, 89-93 Fonthill Road, Finsbury Park, N4 3JH will open from 11am to 8pm.
