Invest in equity by supporting our 5th anniversary Afro Fashion Week Milan event, this year completely online for the first time! This year’s digital format enables us to allow extremely generous sponsorship rates for this year only. Through our promotional campaign and events, you’ll attract talent and connect with influencers, fashion designers, and other Afro Fashion industry professionals from around the world.
Based in Italy and Cameroon, the Afro Fashion Association is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization founded in 2015. We believe in the transformative potential of fashion, art, and culture as a means for cross-cultural exchange, empowerment, and sustainable economic development. Our work in the two countries is synergistic, tuned to the needs and opportunities we have identified in each local context.
What you get
This year, our all-digital format permits us to offer sponsorship packages at unprecedented low rates. Packages include opportunities to be a title sponsor for AFWM 2020 events or festival, feature your brand in our social media campaigns or Exquisite Afro fashion magazine, and more. See Sponsorship document for details.
We will be heavily promoting Afro Fashion Week Milan through our own social channels and expect substantial international press about this year’s festival, particularly given the present historical context of the global Black Lives Matter racial justice movement. Our past editions have been covered by the European fashion press including Vogue Italy and Elle, as well as national Italian news and television. This year marks our 5th anniversary so we are planning for a very special event, which will be held entirely online to ensure participants’ safety given the pandemic.
As a sponsor, here’s what you can expect from us before and during the event:
- Press conference
- Press release distributed to major Italian news, international fashion press, and Milan local publications
- Direct e-mail marketing to our audience through newsletters
- Social network campaign via Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter
- Promotion on this website (afrofashion.org) and our AFWM 2020 microsite (afrofashionweek.org)
- Advertising of the event through our media partners
We will continue to direct our audience to content following the event, and through Exquisite, our magazine dedicated to the world of Afro fashion, slated for publication this December 2020. All event activities will be uploaded and archived on our Youtube channel and this website, in addition to remaining visible via the social channels to which they were livestreamed.
