AMFW 2013 CANCELLED
The AMFW teams were in meetings all day yesterday regarding the show as so many designers are experiencing problems in regard to shipping, vaccinations, logistics, visas, getting the collections ready, etc. Arise proposed to bring 50 designers to Lagos, however, due to the tight deadlines most people are finding it very difficult to participate this year.
After much deliberation, the ARISE Magazine Fashion Week management has announced that its proposed AMFW 2013 event, scheduled for March 28-1 April, has been postponed due to technical and logistical reasons. In its place they announced TWO shows; the first will take place during IMG Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week from 5-12th September 2013, showcasing Spring/Summer 2014 collections; and the second event will be the annual AMFW – Lagos 2014, to celebrate Nigeria’s 100th Anniversary.
