The Plus-size Fashion Week Africa (PFWA) team is calling on Designers to showcase their designs on the runway at the first ever plus-size fashion week in Africa. Plus-size Fashion Week Africa (PFWA) is a first of its kind fashion runway show that highlights plus size models and apparels. The event is set to hold on Sunday, September 2, 2017 at the Main Banquet Hall of the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos. The event will feature a plus size runway fashion show, plus size modelling competition and exhibition booths to create a unique shopping experience for consumers.
PFWAfrica is aimed at maximising the growing focus on the plus-size fashion industry and also the promotion of the African culture. This maiden edition is themed: “Celebrating the Real African Woman”. It is billed to attract over 500 people who will be exposed to your designs and fashion pieces.
We would like to invite all talented Plus-size designers to showcase their craft on the runway and show every plus-sized woman that they are beautiful regardless of their body size. If you are a designer and you have not signed up already, and would like to participate. Click on the link below.

Asides the fashion show another major highlight of the event is the search for “Africa’s next plus-sized model”. Successful participants at the auditions will grace the stage at the PFWAfrica and will also be signed, trained and developed by a renowned Modelling Agency. International modelling exposure will also be gotten through our partner Modelling Agency. The plus size modelling competition will start form 8th of July, 2017.
The Plus-size Fashion Week Africa was birthed out of the need to stop the stigmatisation and body shaming of the plus-sized woman, we believe that every woman should be comfortable in her skin and body regardless of what the society thinks as long as they are healthy.
