African fashion and arts as a way for integration. FIMA’s next edition, the 11th one, overlaps with the 20th anniversary of this high-profile event, a unique one in its own genre. To properly celebrate this anniversary, the date with the Made in Africa fashion for the first time will be in Morocco, in Dakhla, from November the 21st to the 24th. This is part of a framework initiative that involved the participation of the country’s highest authorities, such as His Majesty King Mohammed VI. His Majesty is the first top African investor in Western Africa and the second top investor at a continental level. Morocco is a top partnership choice for FIMA, having supported the festival since its very first editions in the 90s. Morocco was the first country in the continent to strongly believe in a review revolving around Africa’s fashion. During the press conference at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, Alphadi (the father of the FIMA project, loved by everyone for his dedication to fashion, art and culture) thanked His Majesty Mohammed VI for his constant support and passion towards the festival, as well as His Excellency Mahamadou Issofou, the President of the Republic of the Niger, for his undying trust in the commercial and cultural project. Every year the FIMA festival makes a name for itself as an international event not to be missed.
