Promoting Congolese and African fashion
Congo Fashion Week is an international event created by Marie-France Idikayi in 2011 in order to promote Congolese and African fashion, upcoming and established designers to the fast ever growing international market.
There is an emerging market for fashion in heart of Africa, Congo wants to be a part of that expansion. This is far more than just clothes presented on the runway, it is the implementation of the Congolese dream: the fashion business!
Through fashion shows, exhibitions and talks, we present an opportunity for buyers, members of the public and the media to discover the latest trends of our industry.

The mission of Congo Fashion Week is to :
– Promote Congolese fashion & culture
– Create a strong fashion industry
– Boost national tourism

– Help build strong brands within the Congolese community both in Congo and from the Diaspora
