Share

The Bag Show, now in its 9th year, is a prestigious platform that showcases the exceptional talent of bag designers in Addis Ababa. This highly anticipated event not only celebrates creativity but also serves as a significant fundraiser for a local charity.

Following a rigorous selection process, twelve outstanding bag designers have been chosen by a distinguished panel of judges to participate in the Bag Show.

This year, the Bag Show will span two days, taking place on Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9, at the Musical Fountain, Sheraton Addis.

On the first day, Friday, the event will kick off with a captivating runway presentation, featuring the latest designs from the top twelve bag designers. Attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to preview and purchase these exquisite bags at a Pop-Up Sale following the show. This ticketed event will be held from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased for 2000 ETB through Amole.

The excitement continues on the following day, with the continuation of the Pop-Up Sale, which will include a Design Market. This unique shopping experience will be open to the public from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and admission is free.

Not only does The Bag Show contribute to the local creative economy, but it also supports the community through its philanthropic efforts. All proceeds from ticket sales and 20% of the sales generated during the two-day Pop-Up Sale will be donated to Our Father’s Kitchen, a local charity affiliated with HIDO (Hiwot Integrated Development Organization). Our Father’s Kitchen aims to provide access to food and resources for a better future.

The Bag Show is part of the Dashen Culture Club series of events. Bag sales during the show will be facilitated by Dashen Bank Representatives, who will utilize secure hand-held payment terminals. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to open accounts with Dashen Bank and become members of the Dashen Culture Club.
