AFWL 2024

Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) 2024 has announced October 11th and 12th for this year’s edition.

This year’s edition of both the AFWL and AFWN (Africa Fashion Week Nigeria) marks the 14th and the 10th-anniversary editions of the award-winning twin fashion platforms founded by the effervescent and highly resourceful Olori Aderonke Ademiluyi-Ogunwusi.

The AFWL is the premier international African fashion showcase platform that began in London in 2011 at the Gibson Hall to a rapturous ovation. Over the years, thousands of brands of African heritage from around the globe have been showcased to the world to an impressive audience.

The grand success of the mother brand, the AFWL, birthed the impressive daughter brand the AFWN with a base in Lagos, Nigeria.

The London dates for the AFWL 2024 are Friday and Saturday, October 11 and 12, 2024, at the Kensington and Chelsea Conference and Events Centre on Hornton Street. London, England. W8 7NX.

The AFWN (Africa Fashion Week Nigeria) 2024 will be held between 7th and 9th, December 2024, at the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. It promises to be three extraordinary days of fashion & style.

The theme for both editions is “Traditional Textiles and Royal Regalia“.

Olori Ronke Ademiluyi-Ogunwusi, as we all know, is also the founder of the impressive Adire Odua brand with a base in Ile-Ife, Osun State. She is a royal princess of the source (Ile-Ife) as her late grandfather was an Ooni-Orisa himself, whilst also a wife of His Imperial Majesty Alaiyeluwa Oba Adeyeye Babatunde Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, the Olofin Adimula Ooni-Orisa of Ile-Ife. Who is the most colourful and, by extension, the Most Stylish Monarch in Africa. He is also an award-winning royal father, and also the able Ambassador Plenipotentiary of both brands.

The adire fabric of which Olori Aderonke is a major exponent is one of the most ‘authentic traditional fabrics’ from Nigeria that says so much about our great culture and tradition.

Kabiyesi (Oba Adeyeye Babatunde Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II) has supported the twin brands from when he was an heir to the throne and a businessman and that royal support hasn’t subsided since he ascended to the most revered throne in Africa.

This is the reason he has decided to grace this press conference to show how important these events are to him and to showcase his full support to his hardworking wife, whilst also showing what our culture and tradition mean to him. As he promotes both at any given opportunity.

These 2 events in London and Lagos promise to be the best yet in the series so far!
