It has featured world-renowned designers from Africa and around the world, including Robert Cavalli, Deola Sagoe, Lanre Da Silva Ajayi, Ozwald Boateng, Lisa Folawiyo, Tiffany Amber, Kenneth Ize, LaQuan Smith, Maison ARTC, and up to 250 others, which formed a crucial part of the foundation for the creative and cultural renaissance taking place across Africa today. Previous editions were held in Lagos, Abuja, New York, London, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Washington D.C, and Dubai.
