The platform aims to cut across geographic and culture
barriers and position itself as a business of fashion and design event targeted
at showcasing the best of the fashion and design industry, drive the Nigerian
fashion economy and ultimately uplift its profile within the industry.

talents in the fashion industry; design led exhibitions featuring fashion
products and accessories, textiles, furniture design, photography, art installations
and architecture; workshops that will facilitate knowledge transfer,

becoming the melting pot for business in Africa.
Participants, designers and visitors alike can expect a
diversified and interactive platform to maximise their exposure within and
beyond their industry circle and open gateways for more business opportunities.
