Ankara Festival Los Angeles (“AFLA”) a non-profit organization was created in 2010 with the aim to increase the visibility of African Culture through Fashion, Music, dance, and Food. Our goal is to showcase Modern African Designs in African print, new young designers looking for a stage to showcase their talent and develop their entrepreneurial ambition in the fashion arena.
Ankara Festival in Los Angeles also serves as a platform for both established industry professionals and aspiring newcomers to showcase their work as well as network with peers and the public AFLA in 2013 partnered with organisations like Royal Dynamite, TOMS® One for One ® and its Giving Partners to give back to the African Child by providing them with shoes and help restore sight
This year, the 6th Edition of Ankara Festival Los Angeles on the 11th & 12th of September 2015 will be at the historic Avalon Theater in Hollywood, the entertainment headquarter of the world and the country’s most diverse and multicultural arena., in the city of Los Angeles. AFLA promotes African Art, Music, and Culture. We bridge the gap between Africa and ‘mainstream America’.
