28 Oct AFR IN CAIRO
The most anticipated African edition of the Africa Fashion Reception took place in Cairo, Egypt with pomp and pageantry on the 28th October, 2019 at Canrod Hilton Hotel.
This was the first time since its inception the African edition of the AFR was held outside its traditional host place – African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. And this was due to a deal struck between the African Union and our Egyptian host and partners – BPW Africa Business & Professional Women
