Fifi Ejindu Discusses African Arts & Fashion Banquet by AFWL 2013

By on June 23, 2013

Nigerian business woman, architech and socialite Fifi Ejindu spoke recently with Modern Ghana about the first 2013 fundraiser for the African Arts and Fashion Initiative. The initiative was set up to provide young designers opportunities to showcase their talent without the hinderance of financial burdens. The fundraiser is part of African Fashion Week London (AFWL) 2013 which takes place on August 1-3, 2013.

Princess Fifi as she is also known, is a patron of AFWL 2013 and had this to say about the upcoming fundraiser which is the African Arts & Fashion Banquet: "I believe Africa Fashion Week London is a great platform for African talent and a great opportunity for Africa to showcase the talent that we possess. The era of the hungry African child is long over and it is now time for our culture to be recognized globally."

"With this event we intend to raise start-up funds for emerging talent and tuition fees for extremely talented designers, hence in a way we are empowering the youth of Africa. While some have the opportunity and the funds to start their fashion labels, many others have no one to give them an opportunity or the funds they need. We have all the natural resources and all the talent in Africa but we should not leave it just to our leaders to help progress. If each of us were to sweep our own doorstep, the world would become a cleaner place. Therefore, this is our way to help emerging talent to a global platform and the funds they need."

Dignataries expected to grace the event include the First Lady of Cross Rivers State – Her Excellency Mrs Liyel Imoke as well as the Minister of Culture and Tourism Mr Edem Duke.

While we are impressed with Princess Fifi's involvement in this effort, we are equally captivated by her fashion sense and that she is in her early 50s!!! Her skin is flawless; she definitely looks great for her age! Amazing combination of beauty and brains! Keep up the great work Princess Fifi!
