An Abuja-based fashion company, Hopez Tude Rizons Limited is set to

host the first edition of African Fashion For Peace (AFFP) in Abuja on

February 17th, this year.

The chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, Chioma Offor, told

LEADERSHIP that the project was formed in the wake of insurgency in

the country, adding that it was an advocacy for peace in the country.

According to her, “Fashion has gone beyond clothing. It is a medium to

foster peace across the world. Our focus is on conflict zones to end

conflict in over 20 African countries, which encourages integration

and unlock opportunities in economic diversification for sustainable

growth and development, especially in African natural fabric.

Offor noted that the theme “Mainstreaming African Fashion for

Enduring Peace and Harmony on the Continent” is apt at the time of

various communal clashes in the country.

She also disclosed that the company is in partnership with Spanish

Embassy and other international and indigenous designers, adding that

the programme would feature awards for various peace ambassadors

within and outside the country.
