The grand finale to 3 days of revelling in fashion at the 20th edition of the ARISE Fashion Week came to a remarkable conclusion on Saturday the 4th day of February 2023. On its third day, this “Future Forward” themed event featured some of the most classic names in the African fashion industry. 10 exceptional designers from Africa and the diaspora showcased their amazing collections against a backdrop of curated selections of jazz music in celebration of progressive African creativity in fashion and music, as well as ARISE’s role in championing musical and design talents from our continent and beyond.
