New York Fashion Week [Africa] Trunk Collectives ‘17

Trunk Collectives flourishes during New York Fashion Week Africa

Brands that took part in Adiree’s newest event platform, Trunk Collectives, were featured and retail in Soho. Trunk Collectives is a contemporary growth-hacking and sales-driven platform for multicultural and ethically conscious brands. Opening day for Trunk Collectives, a one-day activation under the Africa Fashion Week brand, commenced on Saturday, September 10, 2016 at a Soho studio gallery (104 Charlton St, New York, NY 10014104, between Hudson and Greenwich Streets).  Here, the launch of the first installation of Trunk Collectives (concept store), fashion presentation (promotion) and mixer (relation building/networking event) took place.

Hosted by Adiree Communications and PR firm, guests experienced multiple layers of culture while attending New York Fashion Week. Sponsors included Aveda and New York Surgical Arts (NYSA), a private cosmetic surgery practice in New York specializing in facial and body cosmetic surgery and ardent supporters of the global arts and science of beauty – with the belief that both go hand in hand.

The designers who showed their collections were:

  • RenownedEthiopian designer Fikirte Addis
  • London-based Liberian Accessory brand | Sareptha Rose
  • Zimbabwean label | Shangani Fashions
  • Gambian Accessory label | Tegaa
