We at the Mercedes Benz African Fashion Festival have nurtured our brand to be a beacon in fashion. A symbol that urges us all to strive, to create and to innovate. Since 2014, we have served as a global voice in fashion, bringing new and veteran designers as well as models to showcase skill, elegance, intelligence, creativity and grace on our platform.
With this in mind we began our search for an icon; someone who would best represent what MBAFF stands for, a Regal personality who isn’t just an image but a symbol that will inspire a generation. It is with these qualities that we announce our MBAFF 2016 Brand Ambassador; Victoria Michaels.
According to Mr. Gideon Raji, CEO of Global Ovation – Organizers of the MBAFF, we are more than delighted to have Victoria Michaels as our ambassador for the Mercedes Benz African Fashion Festival.
