A warm welcome for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin’s second – Africa Fashion Day 

On the 2nd of July 2013, in the frame of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin the second
Africa Fashion Day Berlin was presented. The Runway Show was overbooked
and over 800 people were present. The opening of the show was held by Berlin Choreographer
with an incredible music set by Dj. Bamba Nazar from Amsterdam. The catwalk was
full of emotions and models from all kind of nationalities were highlighting the show. One guest
commented: “Apart from the expected vibrancy of some collections, the innovations and quality of
designs impressed me. I did not realise the diversity within African Fashion.”

Africa-Fashion-Day

Africa Fashion Day Berlin patroness Mrs. Dr. Auma Obama ( Sister of Barack Obama) mentioned:

Africa is increasingly seen as a continent with complex cultures and traditions which not only generate unique and distinct talents but also offer new perspectives to well-known European topics. In many ways, Africa can and must be regarded as an equal partner in the creative sector by now. Africa Fashion Day Berlin is an excellent example for this development. It is perfectly suited to demonstrate Africa’s growing self- awareness and presence on the world stage.

The Africa Fashion Day introduced 4 passionate Designers from Jamaika/ Romero Bryan, Ruanda/Annerose
Muyombano Jewelery, Angola/ Nadir Tati and Cameroun/Arrey Kono to the German Fashion
Scene.

Taking place at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin/Brandenburger Tor and the press conference
kicked off with an introduction of the platform Africa Fashion Day Berlin, it’s relevance in the
German market, and the designers at the Federal Ministry for Economic Coopertion and
Development.  Internationally prolific designers of the African diaspora presented their
collections spring/summer 14.
After the Runway Show selected people out of fashion, economic, ambassodors, music and
filmindustrie were invited to the Soirèe at Hotel Indigo Ku’damm/ Wohlfahrts Restaurant & Bar.
