Fashion really has no end.
As it is the season of Fashion Weeks, the Plus-size Fashion Week Africa (PFWA) is set to hold on the 2nd of September, 2017 at the Main Banquet Hall of the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
This maiden edition is themed: “Celebrating the real African woman” and is billed to attract over 20 designers who will take the stage and exhibition booths to showcase their designs and fashion pieces specifically made for the plus sized woman.
Here’s a little summary of what this amazing fashion is about.
The PFWA is a first of its kind fashion runway show that highlights plus size models and apparels.
The event will feature runway shows, exhibitions, business talks, fashion enterprise on skills acquisition as well as diet talks.
PFWAfrica is aimed at maximising the growing focus of the plus-size fashion industry and also the promotion of the African culture.
Asides the fashion show, another major highlight of the event is the search for “Africa’s next plus-sized model”.
Successful participants at the auditions will grace the stage at the PFWAfrica and will also be signed, trained and developed by a renowned Modelling Agency. International modelling exposure will also be gotten through our partner Modelling Agency and media partners, including Accelerate TV.
The plus size modelling competition will start from 1st of July, 2017.
The Plus-size Fashion Week Africa was birthed out of the need to stop the stigmatisation and body shaming of the plus-sized woman.
The organisers of the show are of the opinion that: “every woman should be comfortable in her skin and body regardless of what the society thinks as long as they are healthy.”
