African Fashion Week Toronto 2022 - Bôhten Eyewear

African Fashion Week Toronto 2022

Are you in Toronto this weekend?

Well, you’ll be there just in time for their African Fashion Week!

The city of Toronto is hosting its African Fashion week from August 21st - 28th 2022. The event promises to be a large celebration to showcase the continent and its diaspora through culture-rich events and activities.

There are a myriad of events scheduled throughout the week to include an opening soiree, workshops, seminars, fashion shows and an award show. According to the organizers, the week is "designed as an opportunity to provide exposure to various designers and brands including those from out of province and throughout the world."

The main events you can look forward to are:

Student Designer workshops 
This is an “opportunity for Students and startups  to showcase their vision in a competitive design exhibition in the presence of High Caliber panel of creative designers, media, audience and judges.” Definitely an event to check out some up and coming designers in the community.

Faces of AFWT
This is a "progressive platform designed to start and enhance model careers in Canada.” If you're head hunting for the next face for your brand, this may be a great place to start!

African Fashion Awards 
An awards show "created to celebrate and support the Afro Fashion Industry in Canada and Abroad.” We would encourage you to come out to this to support all the African Fashion brands.

Bôhten has been nominated for an award in the Accessories - Designer of the Decade category for which we are honored to receive.

If you are in Toronto, we highly encourage you to visit one of the many events the African Fashion Week Toronto is hosting.
Who knows, we may see you there!
