The second instalment of Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) returns on 3rd and 4th August 2012.
Following the unprecedented success of last year's event, AFWL has relocated to London Spitalfields, recent winners of a Best New Open Space award. This year's event is set to be bigger and better with a larger venue, more designers and tons more exhibitors. This will be the first large scale event to showcase UK and non-UK based seasoned and emerging fashion designers inspired by Africa.

The showcase debuted last year with an impressive turnout of over 4,700 attendees, the two day extravaganza created an unparalleled platform for over 50 international designers to showcase their collections. With the Olympics this year, all corners of the world will be focusing on what London has to offer, on and off the race tracks. The time is now to highlight Africa as a frontrunner in the international fashion community.

Spitalfields Market is surrounded by independent shops, cafes, bars and awarding winning restaurants such as Canteen, Galvin La Chapell and Giraffe to name a few. With a capacity of over 10,000 visitors, Spitalfields is the perfect location for a two day display of fashion, art, music and food.

Ronke Ademiluyi, CEO of Africa Fashion Week London says:

'We were astounded by the level of support shown to AFWL last year. This time round, we are taking things to a higher level, with a bigger venue it's hoped the event will reach a higher magnitude. By promoting African fashion globally we hope to integrate African countries into the fashion industry and also contribute to the reduction of poverty by developing the fashion and textile industry'.
