Fynn spoke in a telephone interview from London with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

“That is why I initiated the awards to shine a spotlight on promising African fashion creatives, whose full potential has not been recognised.

“We need to honour these people.

“Most times, somebody will be doing very well but nobody is honouring him or celebrating him,” she said.

Fynn said that the awards had the potential of opening doors of opportunities for Africans in the Diaspora.

She said that it would help African creatives not yet celebrated to be known, as well as put African fashion creatives on the world map.

According to her, plans have been concluded to hold the 2022 edition of the awards, the second edition, in London in September.

Fynn said that the initiative was aimed at celebrating immense talents of African fashion creatives – clothes designers, accessory designers and fashion photographers, among others.

She said that each category would be judged by a panel of professionals who would select a number of finalists for the ceremony.
