Hub of Africa Addis Fashion Week


Hub of Africa Addis Fashion Week (HAFW) announced that it will hold its annual event from January 26 to 30, 2022 at Hyatt Regency.
An institution that continues to promote the fashion and arts industry in Ethiopia at its establishment HAFW gives us an additional pleasure, and will be officially celebrating its 10+ years promoting the African fashion industry through its platforms over the years in the heart of Addis Ababa.
Fashion is a multi-billion Dollar industry, of which Africa only has a minute share. HAFW seeks to remedy this and has worked diligently towards this growth. Since 2010 its events are one of the most important platforms in developing the African fashion industry for designers, models, photographers, stylists and all stakeholders that are actively engaged in the extensively wider value chain of the industry.
Over the years, more than 100 African designers have participated and graced the HAFW stage. Opportunities that designers have gained include showing during New York African Fashion Week, Berlin Fashion Week, connecting with international buyers and media, and growing their brands to the global market.
This year, HAFW is also excited to present its inaugural Mentorship Program. This annual program seeks to connect emerging designers with fashion design experts (mentors) to facilitate knowledge transfer, develop future leaders, and provide every opportunity to guide their successful and rewarding career in the fashion industry.
