The African Fashion Fund is an organization that empowers female fashion designers from Africa and its diaspora to succeed in the global fashion industry and market. By providing designers with educational opportunities in partnership with established players in the fashion industry, the Africa Fashion Fund supports African designers’ professional success.


Our vision is to see more successful African designers in the global fashion industry and luxury market. It is our mission to provide the highest quality of opportunities and experiences to the African designers included in AFF, which will help to cultivate their careers and align their accomplishments with other leading designers. We create new and sustainable jobs and enhance the attractiveness of African countries for international business as a result of the development of African designers and creative industries; ultimately boosting Africa’s economic reputation and strengthening its position in the global economy.
