(SACRAMENTO, Calif., June 9th, 2010) Less than 2 days to the kickoff of the first ever FIFA World Cup 2010 to be played in Africa, Ladybrille Media Group, Inc., announces its role as official media partner for the first ever Africa Fashion Week, New York (AFWNY).
AFWNY is the brainchild of twenty-three year old Adiat Disu, the daughter of Nigeria’s Ex-FIFA World Cup player, Tajudeen Disu. Disu’s AFWNY is targeted at 44% of New York’s population who, according to the US Census Bureau, are from the African diaspora with roughly 3.5million living in the fashion capital.
“Adiat is an impressive young woman and it is an honor to affiliate our brand with AFWNY as one of its official media partners,” said Uduak Oduok, founder and CEO of Ladybrille Media Group Inc. “The timing for AFWNY is perfect given how hyper-focused the world will be on Africa thanks to the World Cup. AFWNY brings to Americans who will not be in Africa during the World Cup the rich culture the continent has to offer,” adds Oduok.
“We are no longer limiting Africa to its continental boundaries. What we are doing is bringing Africa to the doorsteps of Europeans and Americans alike,” said Adiat Disu, Founder and Producer of AFWNY. “I am so pleased to have Ladybrille as a partner with AFWNY. To me, this partnership means I must have done something right! [I]t shows me that my work, my agency, is having an impact, that it is successful and will continue to grow! ,” adds Disu.
AFWNY takes place July 12th-18th, 2010. The luxury multi-day event includes runway shows, exhibitions, music performances from top African artists, and industry networking events. Produced by Disu’s Adireé Fashion Agency, AFWNY aims to break through the New York fashion noise and allow diverse and upcoming designers to voice themselves through creative forums. The event anticipates over 2,000+ audience members, prominent buyers, celebrities and media.
