ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION WEEK TO WELCOME TOP 50 AFRICAN DESIGNERS TO LAGOS, NIGERIA



Filed under : Africa, Entertainment, Fashion

Hola fashionista’s!

Arise Magazine’s Africa Fashion Collective is back!

Following a successful run of THREE seasons (in 2009 and 2010) of the ARISE AFRICA FASHION COLLECTIVE at New York Fashion Week, Bryant Park in New York, and the successful sponsorship of the inaugural ARISE AFRICA FASHION WEEK at the Sandton Convention Centre, in Johannesburg and Cape Town in 2009, ARISE MAGAZINE, Africa’s first global style and culture magazine, today announces TWO of the most spectacular events to come out of Africa.

First, ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION WEEK. It will be held in Lagos, Nigeria from 10 to 13 March 2011, at an exclusive venue. Africa’s Top 50 designers, selected by invitation only, by a panel of experts, will showcase their collections for 2011. As with ARISE AFRICA FASHION COLLECTIVE, this showcase will come as the fitting end to the traditional fashion season after Paris Fashion Week and is designed to compete with and complete the world’s global Fashion Weeks. The ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION WEEK will end with the ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION AWARDS on the night of 13 March 2010.

Then, to validate their successful collections, the very best of these designers will also be invited to participate in the inaugural and annual ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION GALA in New York on Wednesday, 14 September 2011 during New York Fashion Week.

With Mr. Nduka at New York Fashion Week

ARISE MAGAZINE founder, Nduka Obaigbena said:

“ARISE MAGAZINE is already leading the way and due to the unprecedented demand to showcase Africa’s finest designers, from Deola Sagoe, Tiffany Amber, Clive Rundle and Black Coffee, to newcomers like Maki Oh and Christie Brown and others. We feel the time is right for us create our very own series of spectacular events and show the world that Africa is here to stay at the cutting edge of international fashion.

The magazine’s mission is to continue to promote young and established African and African Diaspora designers. This new initiative will complement the showcasing opportunities offered by the traditional Fashion Weeks around the world.

    Thank you for saying this Fashionprm.  I am one of the Arise victims, who are still waiting for Arise to pay me for a job I did for the magazine, well over a year ago.  Very cleverly (and by cleverly I mean under-handedly), the magazine worked under the name of Velo agency.  After working well above the magazine’s means- the agency (meaning Arise) went bankrupt.  Fast forward a few months, Velo agency dissolved or as their site now says they will be back ‘shortly’ and the magazine continues and I doubt ‘small fish’ like me will ever get paid. 
    What confounded me at the time was the list I was sent of all the people Arise owed money to and the amount.
    What saddens me is the magazine (and several other fashion magazines) get away with this kind of behaviour. Creatives will continue to be seduced by the illusion of beauty the magazine gives.  Underneath that beauty lies a company with no professional or spiritual integrity and conscience.
    Hopefully in the future better and more responsible outlets will show themselves as beacons for African fashion, and I intend to be one of them.
