The event will be hosted by the beautiful Amanda Parris and musically curated by the dynamic DJ Afroditee. Guests will be taken on a visual and musical journey inspired by the 80’s and 90’s. It will be an afternoon and evening filled with festivity and reflection as we pay tribute to the past, toast to the present, and acknowledge AfroChic, it’s growth, and bright future.
Through the years of this exhibit, AfroChic has aimed to provide opportunities for sustainability for artists and youth, empower young Afro-Canadian women and men, and serve under-represented communities in Toronto. Over the years, AfroChic has made its mark on the city by successfully doing just that and has attracted a steady and loyal audience in the process. Everyone from professionals and emerging entrepreneurs, to fashionista’s and “cool kids” can be found at the exhibit. The diverse audience that it draws is definitely one of its key features and will be also be one of the main reasons why the final exhibit will be nothing short of captivating.
The events theme and ambiance will exude and inspire a wave of nostalgia that will bring about memories of the Freshest Prince we ever saw, the time when Queens demanded we practice U-N-I-T-Y, when living in “A Different World” was celebrated, and somehow, no matter who you were or where you came from, pearls made you want to jam and you had no desire to go Chasing Waterfalls. This will be an event that will have to be experienced, in every way, so come dressed in your most chic outfit and prepare to be inspired!
