“The Africa Fashion Show Geneva aims not only to promote cultural exchange and encourage a positive narrative about Africa but also to utilise the power of innovative, creative solutions including art, fashion, music and dance to create awareness of African excellence in the world.

The event will commence with a runway fashion show on Friday and end with an exclusive gala evening on at Mandarin Oriental Hotel Geneva.

Alongside an exclusive runway show, the gala event will also feature live performances by Nigerian rap and hip-hop artiste, Babatunde and US-based Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, producer, and emcee Maimouna “Mumu Fresh” Youssef.

The show is set to host distinguished guests of the Genève International, the diplomatic and UN community, such as Mr. Michael Moller, acting director general, United Nations Office in Geneva, Mrs. Anja Loetscher, director, Geneva Convention and Visitors Bureau, as well as African ambassadors in Geneva and leading names in Swiss business and fashion industry.

As well as providing a unique opportunity for talented upcoming African fashion designers to showcase their designs, the event promises to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere where the audience will not only enjoy great runway shows but also have the opportunity to interact with designers.
