WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT WAX FASHION
WaxFashion is a salon dedicated to african fabric.
WAX FASHION PARIS is a project led by a young team working for African values. It is sponsored by the young association BlueHand, which will act for the educational and health development in Togo, but also for the accompaniment of foreigners in integration in France.
The WAX FASHION project is run by a nonprofit association that works in humanitarian work their goal is to help sick children, homeless people, migrants and the needy.
Organizing events is a way to finance the needs of the association.
The idea of organizing an event around the fabric arose from the following observation: the African fabric has become such a coveted fabric that one might be prepared to think that it is a tool for unifying cultures. These carriers are so many different origins.
However, he does not have his own manifestation. Apart from fashion shows, there is no cultural event that really highlights the African fabric.
WaxFashion tends to bring together actors practising the entire fabric. The project has evolved through meetings with African designers and creators. The latter systematically express their need and enthusiasm for the idea of participating in a large-scale event presenting their creation.
The Salon is the meeting place between creators and customers. It’s the occasion to honor the creators working the WAX, but also the African fabrics as a whole (bogolan, baoule, kente, batik etc…). It is also a space of exchange and meeting for various actors, including economic operators.
WaxFashion Paris is festive and convivial. This is a great space for promotion. The primary ambition is to make the WaxFashion Paris an unmissable meeting place for textile production in France… and recognized beyond borders. Contributing to the emergence and success of the African cultural economic sector is their motto.
