BLACK IN FASHION will be a Pop-Up event in a shared Atelier of BUKI AKOMOLAFE and EMEKA, presenting the work of premium designers. During the two day event seven German based designers will be showcasing in one space. The BLACK IN FASHION event is a curated event by Fashion Africa Now, BUKI AKOMOLAFE and EMEKA, it is a space to share experiences and voices. We want to amplify our voices, by having short-form artist talks about who we are, what our challenges are, and how we want to shape the fashion landscape. The aim is to create an event of visibility of creative voices while bridging the gap to the European landscape.

BLACK IN FASHION (Germany) was initiated by Fashion Africa Now in 2020 after the global Black Lives Matter protest as an answer to more visibility and connection, among creatives out of Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
