Plus Size Fashion Week Africa (PFW AFRICA 2018) is back and even more exciting for the second edition!
PFW AFRICA is a fashion show dedicated to “celebrating the plus sized African woman”. Themed #BeautifullyMe, this year’s edition will hold on Saturday and Sunday November 3rd and 4th 2018 at the Oriental Hotel Lagos.
“Being a Christian, the bible says that we are faithfully and wonderfully made, this means that God has made us beautiful. So, #beautifullyme is how God has made me and I am striving to be the best version of who I am”; Temi Aboderin-Alao the conveyer of PlusSize Fashion Week Africa shares the inspiration behind this year’s theme; #beautifullyme.
“The Plussize Fashion Week Africa was birthed out of the need to stop the stigmatization and body shaming of the plus-sized woman. We believe that every woman should be comfortable in her skin and body regardless of what the society thinks as long as they are healthy” the organizers noted via a release.
The organizers break down exciting details about this year’s show:
The activities this year has already begun with the search for Africa’s Next Plus-size Model (ANPM), where the participants will grace the stage at the PFWAFRICA and the winner will get international modelling exposure.
This year’s modelling competition will only be open to the models under the Golden Curvy modelling agency as it is the number 1 plus size modelling agency in Nigeria, and this guarantees that the models will be well trained by the best and of a high standard. We will also ensure that this year’s participants have parental consent to travel and model if they do win.
There would be exhibitions running for the two days where designers and retailers will display their wares for the hundreds of people that will attend from all over the world. Emerging and established designers will also be bringing their A—game to the PFWAFRICA runway to showcase their creativity and diversity.
On the Finale day, we will be launching and having the maiden edition of our Master class called “Glow up and Flawless”. This year’s master class will see plus-sized ladies being taught about mental well-being, body positivity and self-confidence. The finale day will close with The Fashion Gala Night which is set to be an exclusive event where awards will be given to those who have contributed immensely in plus size industry in Africa.
