Afro Fashion


Advancing diversity and inclusion in the fashion, design & art industries through world-class events, talent cultivation & education

Meet our latest edition

Our September 2024 edition was our most prolific yet! Our designer Maxivive took the stage at Palazzo Reale, seamlessly blending Nigerian roots with London streetstyle. Afro Fashion was everywhere you looked this September, from a fundraising gala for the Black Carpet Awards to a free exhibition on the future of fashion at the iconic Palazzo Morando in collaboration with Red-Eye Metazine. Add in sustainable weaving workshops, horizon-expanding talks, and a star-studded opening event; shake; repeat. Plus, for the first time ever at Milan Fashion Week, you can remix this edition’s featured collections with GN3RA and try on your favourite looks with augmented reality try-ons in collaboration with SPIN.

Creative Studios Milano

Giving space and voice to emerging talents throughout Milano. From September to December in collaboration with Apple Creative Studios, we brought together some of the brightest minds in the creative sector for a series of free public gatherings and networking events dedicated to the themes of identity, belonging and mental health.
