The much anticipated upcoming fashion show in Abuja, geared at promoting and showcasing African designers and vendors have been postponed by its organizers. In the bid to ensure a successful event without any hitches, the organizers decided it was best to move the show to September instead of July 13th to 15th 2017 as initially planned. As disappointed as ethnic fashion lovers may be, it is best to give a hundred percent than zero percent.
According to Maimuna Abubakar CEO of Tozali magazine she subscribes to the postponement as a “deliberate yet effective strategy to truly gather artists, designers and vendors for the best possible outcome”.
The new dates scheduled for TAFCWA is now September 14th to 16th 2017 at the Exhibition Pavilion Art gallery located at Area 11 beside the International Conference Center Abuja. The team sincerely apologizes to its partners namely Lake Chad palace Hotel, International Institute Of Tourism, Fashion & Hospitality Bayelsa, G&G Models Africa, Emirati, Ajike beauty, Waffle Stop, media partners, supporters and volunteers who have taken out time to coordinate and liaise with the members of T-AFCW Abuja in ensuring the show progresses without a hitch. This is not an end to the show, merely a push to a more successful outcome.
Applications are once again open for vendors and designers to apply for stands/spaces at the show. All tickets already purchased still hold merit at the show now scheduled for September.
