There is an emerging market for fashion in the heart of Africa and Congo wants to be a part of that expansion. This is far more than just clothes presented on the runway, it is the implementation of the Congolese dream: the fashion business!

Congo Fashion Week is an international day event created by Marie-France Idikayi in 2011 in order to promote Congolese and African fashion, upcoming and established designers to the fast ever growing international market. Through fashion shows, exhibitions and talks, this event presents an opportunity for buyers, members of the public and the media to discover the latest trends of our industry.

This is a new concept born from deep thinking about expanding the CFW vision throughout the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It honours different cities in the country through a special program adapted to the life and customs of the region in symbiosis with the Fashion spirit embodied by CFW.

The 6th edition of Congo Fashion Week will be held from the 11th-14th of October in Kinshasa and several talented local and international designers will be honoured through high-end pieces and an attractive program consisting of runway shows and other activities carefully designed to provide the best experience to the Lushois.
