Since its inception in 2008, the pioneering fashion event has beautifully evolved, as its name changed from ARISE Magazine Fashion Week to ARISE Africa Fashion Week, and ultimately ARISE Fashion Week, which returned to Lagos in 2018 following a six-year break. 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.

ARISE Fashion Week runway has been graced by some of the most iconic models across the globe, including Naomi Campbell, Alec Wek, Grace Jones, Oluchi Onweagba, Bethann Hardison, Tyson Beckford, Alton Mason, Imaan Hammam, Davidson Obennebo, and Nyagua Ruea; as well as music superstars such as Rihanna, Jay-Z, Wizkid, Asa, Tinie Tempah, Akon, Solange, and Mary J.
