After months of feverish planning, logistical summersaults, clouds of uncertainties and start and stop movements, the made in Africa week has finally come and gone and oh boy did we bring it or what? 3 days of back to back fabulous- ity; bigger, bolder, and more beautiful than ever, this years’ made in Africa week was truly a surpassing of our expectations and a step in the right direction towards the vision we have for this celebration of the African continent.

The week began by introducing out brand new baby: The Entrepreneur event. A gathering of African businesspersons in an evening of networking, business presentations and panel deliberations on key topical business issues.

The event was well attended and featured a diverse panel of seasoned African business owners from the tech space, real estate, finance, fashion and marketing and branding. This event was a worthy introduction of our entrepreneur initiative which you will be hearing a lot more about.

On day 2, the bar d’eau, a trump hotel collection was host to our vibrant networking mixer which saw an exciting arrary of people in attendance. From singles looking to mingle, to those looking to make business connections or those who just wanted to experience the vivacious atmosphere of an African gathering as they gyrated to the beautiful beats of Eli Fola.

Our line up of events was rounded off by the most alluring of fashion shows ever! We truly outdid ourselves, as a large ballroom at the swanky Mist in Harlem was transformed into a show extravaganza. Amazing creation after amazing creation from 3 super talented African designers sashayed down the runway, amidst flashing camera lights and the faint ooos and ahhsss from the audience. It was truly spectacular!

The design houses ; AKOU of the Ivory coast, Chuks Collins of Nigeria, and the Liberian- American House of Rubi, 3 budding designers who are set to take the U.S market by storm. It was a true pleasure showcasing these talents.

The amazing MAKANE KOUYATE'S DEMBAYA gave us authentic afrobeat and left us asking for more.
Please enjoy these amazing pictures from our events, and keep an eye on made in Africa as we continue to celebrate the essence of the African creative power!
