Africa Fashion Week London will take place at Olympia London for the first time on 7-9 August.
Moving across town from the Old Truman Brewery, the three-day show will combine catwalk shows and fashion exhibitions from designers inspired by African fashion in its new home, Olympia West.
The show has grown from 4,000 visitors when the show launched in 2011 to around the 25,000 mark.
The exhibition’s founder Ronke Ademiluyi said: “Africa Fashion Week London was born out of a passion and desire for change, to provide a much needed platform for emerging and established designers to showcase African inspired fashion to the world.
“We’ve chosen Olympia London as the venue for 2014 because we think it has the prestige and the location to attract the right audience for our brand vision; including influential fashion buyers, writers and trend commentators.”
Olympia London commercial director Anna Golden said: “We’re delighted to welcome Africa Fashion Week to Olympia West. It’s our most stylish and contemporary space and the perfect ‘blank canvas’ for a fashion show.
“It gives AFWL the opportunity to grow in future because of Olympia West’s links to Olympia Grand and Olympia Central. We look forward to hosting this innovative and pioneering show and to encouraging its longevity within the venue.”
Olympia London has launched a vehicle share service.
