The Festival for African Fashion and Arts, FAFA, organizes Fashion for Peace which is focused on bringing together established and emerging African fashion magnates from across the continent. The anticipated 4th edition will be held in Nairobi in 17th November 2012. Fashion is the ultimate expression of all that is beautiful, creative and glamorous and FAFA is a great opportunity for Africa’s promising fashion brands to connect with key contributors of the global fashion industry.
FAFA was set-up in 2008 during the post-election violence which took place in Kenya. As many countries throughout the region continue to know human rights abuse, civil unrest and war, FAFA aims to change perceptions of other communities one mind at a time by exploring and bridging cultures through fashion, art and music.
We as FAFA believe that the diversity of the African continent should be celebrated in a spirit of unity. Fashion for Peace was born from the belief that positive change can come when we stop focusing on the negative and encourage the positive and the inspiring, working together as different cultures in a spirit of harmony. Fashion for Peace will continue to organise events as a call for peace on the African continent, shining a light on the talent and creative energy which exists on the continent.
