I had the tremendous opportunity (thanks to my wonderful friends) to attend a wonderful press conference today on the 9th edition of the Festivale Internationale De La Mode Africaine (FIMA), held at Maision de l’UNESCO, Place de Fontenoy, Paris, France.
‘FIMA has become a major international event in the fashion scene and its 9th edition focusing on “the creativity in the service of the Peace in Africa”, will be organized from 20 to 25 November in Niamey.’
‘While FIMA’s goal is to celebrate African fashion, it also aims at raising awareness within African governments on the opportunities that the fashion industry could create for African development. Its founder, Alphadi, through his passion for fashion, has always been committed to promoting peace.’
It was my first press conference, an utterly amazing experience and I look forward to showcasing more of these types of events that promote the beauty of our African Style and Culture. Without further ado, here are some simply divine shots from the press conference (Please check back for updates and thank so much for all your support, likes, and comments, it truly means a lot to me and I am so grateful to each and everyone of you).
