My biological father was from Guinea. I grew up in the Czech Republic and even if Geneva is a multicultural Heaven in comparison to Prague, I still feel that people of African descent are underrepresented in the media. And when they are, oftentimes in a way that creates headlines. So it gives me a lot of pleasure to promote an event that wants to change it.
A few weeks back I sat down with Vincent Jacquemet, founder and artistic director of Afrodyssée and Valérie Helfer – Kessou Wanda, responsible for Press, PR, and Sponsoring, to talk about the event.
If you want to know what is trending in Africa, then you should not miss this interview. The 4th edition of Afrodyssée – African Trends Market will take place in Maison Pitoëff in Geneva on 12 May 2018.
Besides the latest trends in fashion, jewelry, art, and accessories Afrodyssée will offer delicious African food, interesting workshops and public debates, film screening, and a photo exhibition.
Fashion show and after-party (with a famous guest DJ) will be the highlights of the day. As you will hear in the interview this year’s fashion show promises to be even bigger and better than last year with more emphasis on dance and music.
