The twice-yearly fashion event, which made its debut in Nigeria in 2007 and has since hosted runway shows in numerous cities around the world, frequently highlights African designs and creatives. Running from February 2nd to 4th, it holds space as a jazz festival in a specially curated three-day showcase.

Arise Fashion Week is dedicated to advancing African fashion through innovation, exploration, and monetary assistance. Noteworthy, the Arise platform was dynamic, varying the locations and countries where its events were held at a period when the global fashion elites had not yet raved about the African fashion industry.
