Motto:
Child Mortality like Fashion transcends borders and passes over waters that bridge continents. It encompasses the earth much like the air that we all breathe. La Ville Afrique recognizes that the causes of the death of children is far more than the shoe less children in Africa. Poverty, Malaria, Cholera, Diarrhea is in our backyards, our neighbourhoods, in our cities. Realizing that the problem is deeper than hemispheres is the first step to creating a solution. Self awareness and Education are key in fighting these pandemic and it is up to us to make sure we help those in need.
But just like poverty, Fashion also, transcends borders. It defines a people and creates an awareness of self and culture whilst beckoning others to realize its beauty.
La Ville Afrique – African Fashion Outburst and Awards is meant to create an atmosphere of enlightenment and beauty as it brings forth the various fabrics, styles and customs of the different continents many of us call home.
