The African fashion made by us and seen by us », declared Adama Paris, clarifying that 70 % of the airtime on Fashion Africa TV concerns fashion shows and catwalks of various fashion-weeks of Africa and the Diaspora.
« The purpose is to really show what Africans make here and elsewhere. Later, there will be programs as Celebrity Closet that open the doors for stars’ wardrobes to the public, the portraits of models that are trendy and (that are) filmed during their work, Fashion News« , clarified Adama Paris, founder of Dakar Fashion Week.
The 12th edition of this event that will come to an end on 22nd June still continues in the Senegalese capital town with a huge fashion show planned on Saturday.
