African Arts and Fashion take centre stage at Easter

  • Adire street carnival to hold in October

When it comes to fashion and textile industry in Africa, Nigeria occupies a pride of place. As a country globally recognized for her rich culture and diverse tradition, the country boasts an incredible array of fashion choices and fabrics. 

Notable amongst these fabrics is the adire, which has found favour amongst people all over the continent of Africa and as far as Europe, America, Canada and Asia.

The fashion industry has also continued to grow by the day, with more and more people coming into adire production, and bringing in various innovations.

As a way of promoting this very thriving fashion and garment industry, which by the way will also be doubling as promotion for Nigeria’s culture and tradition, President and Founder of Lady of Africa Empowerment and Advocacy Foundation, Princess Sandra Bukola Fasuyi has embarked on a mission to take the highly appreciated fabric to an entirely different level through exhibitions and carnivals.

Two of such carnivals are the forthcoming Lady of Africa Arts and Craft Fashion billed for Easter Sunday and Easter Monday at the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Iganmu, Lagos, and the Adire Street Culture Carnival billed for October 1st, Nigeria’s Independence Anniversary. 

To this end, invitation is open to all to experience the beauty and richness of the African culture, which will be abundantly on display.

The foundation will also in the coming days be taking this adire promotion to Europe and America, to satisfy the craving of lovers of the adire fabric in those parts of the world.

The mission of Lady of Africa Empowerment and Advocacy Foundation is to support the less-privileged people in the society by waking them up from their slumber and creating employment opportunities for them and make the world a better place for all.
