AFRO FASHION WEEK MILANO
Our flagship annual event brings the global Afro Fashion Week format to one of the most visible fashion capitals of the world through both haute and street couture. Our fashion shows during Afro Fashion Week present leading and emerging collections by African and Afro-inspired creators, showcasing the diversity of styles and expression across contemporary Afro design, celebrating their creators, and encouraging investment in African and African-descended creative businesses.

Advocacy & activism
All of our work seeks to advance diversity and inclusion in the fashion and design sectors. Representation is activism but it isn’t enough. In addition to our events and projects that actively intervene on the status quo, we provide consulting services, educational events, and more to support other organizations in their efforts towards greater inclusivity.
From the Collection
Our Afro Fashion Showroom showcases Afro fashion year-round! All of the items are straight from the catwalks of Afro Fashion Week Milan and embody the Made in Italy attention to craft, all either handcrafted or designed by Afro-descendent artists.
