African Fashion Week North Carolina


African Fashion Week NC (AFWNC) was founded in August 2016 with the aim to help promote the advancement of African inspired fashion products in North Carolina. African fashion industry is a growing and evolving industry. Many African designers are having difficulty entering the market because of challenges and many other obstacles. One of our goals is to help small businesses and startups with exposure and many other expert services. One of our greatest desire is to channel and support the growth and evolution of African inspired fashion products. 

We are always seeking and recruiting the best to help educate, and to help new startups in North Carolina to achieve success. At AFWNC, we understand the need for collaboration, partnership, and unity. This is one of the reasons why we reach out to anybody irrespective of race, religion, culture, and sexual orientation. AFWNC is not only about fashion, but also a medium to instill and help African cultures to proliferate. We humbly welcome any ideas and input that are useful and will contribute towards success.
