Fashion Week Events in Africa


Produce fashion events to introduce more African designers to the global fashion industry. 


The Paper Fig Foundation works in partnership with Kampala Fashion Week in Uganda, CollectiveRW in Rwanda, Lagos Fashion Week in Nigeria, and GLITZ Fashion Week in Ghana. Experts from LDJ in the fields of technical production, model casting, branding, and event logistics share best practices with local event organizers and designers to elevate the quality of these platforms. 

Paper Fig has helped all of these platforms grow, but has partnered with Kampala Fashion Week every step of the way since its inception. 

“Kampala Fashion Week has grown in leaps and bounds,” said Rachel Young, Director of City Programs with Paper Fig. “They’ve been committed to the learning and applying of skills. They take what we give them and apply it in a way that works for them.”
