Obiettivo

The goal is to foster the social and cultural development of Africa through fashion and art. AFG takes on the international front an osmotic process of the value of African cultural heritage with that of the rest of the world.

Each catwalk on which the creations, models and models of AFGs in the world are depicted, are a symbolic bridge to promote intercultural dialogue, osmosis and contamination between different artistic languages.

THE MESSENGER, March 2017


2017



The most important event of the format The Fashion Wears Peace is the World Congress of Women, Fashion and Design, whose aim is to bring together the great names of women in Fashion, Civil and Religious Institutions to discuss survivors discrimination in Sector and to promote peace among peoples.


There is a world of fashion that does not look to luxury, the gangways of Paris and New York, the famous brands, the great designers. It is a world that speaks of peace, solidarity, integration, anti-racism. It is the world of the African Fashion Gate (AFG), the non-profit association that was born with the goal of promoting the social and cultural development of Africa through fashion and art.
