AFRO FASHION ASSOCIATION MILAN
Fab 5 Bridge Builders International
Launching at the 2021 Afro Fashion Week in Milan, the Fab 5 International Bridge Builders models a new approach to international creative collaboration, fostering cultural exchange and launching innovative fashion to the global stage.
Beginning with Cameroon in its inaugural edition, each year highlights a different country, scouting five emerging designers from that region to participate in a fashion show during Milan Fashion Week, connect with buyers and markets, and develop their brand through the support of a full ecosystem of mentorship and professional development.
Part fashion showcase, part educational mission, part cultural exchange, the Fab 5 International Bridge Builders project urgent the fashion industry to work harder to reflect the multicultural society in which we are living. Fashion is a powerful tool, playing an enormous role in shaping how we view and value people. When it changes, it changes not just for the good of fashion but for the society at large which then embodies and reflects those values back.
