The ARISE Africa Fashion Week will be held in Johannesburg (South Africa) from the 12 to 20 June 2009.
The event is sponsored by the monthly magazine Arise, a publication launched in February 2009 to promote African achievement in fashion, music, culture, business and politics.
According to a press release published by African Fashion International (AFI) on allafrica.com, Nduka Obaigbena, group chairman and editor-in-chief of ARISE, said “ARISE recently presented the African Fashion Collective at New York Fashion Week. The partnership with African Fashion International (AFI) is a continued celebration of African achievement and an extension of our commitment to recognize and showcase the very best of African creative talent. I firmly believe that ARISE Africa Fashion Week will attract an international audience and markets beyond the global African Diaspora. The world’s eyes will be firmly focused on Joburg”.
