From February 22 to 27, and in parallel with Milano Fashion Week, the ninth edition of Afro fashion week takes place in the Italian fashion city. The event -organized by the Afro fashion association- has been baptized this year “Connecting all stories”, will take place in various places in Milan and will host events dedicated to the themes of diversity and inclusion, including the fashion language.
The leitmotif of this edition will be precisely the desire to bring out the multicultural qualities of young “bipoc” creatives: black, indigenous and people of color (acronym for black, indigenous and people of color), especially in fashion and accessories, which will have the perfect setting during the high-profile Milan Fashion Week.
The evening of Friday February 24 will see the first edition of the Black Carpet Awards. The evening will be dedicated to highlighting the champions of diversity and inclusion in our society.
