Fashion enthusiasts are to expect an amazing array of fashion and art at the event. Organised by Rwandan top model Sandrine Mucyo under her creative company Ssanduina Ltd, the fashion showcase aims at discovering, promoting, and growing Africa's models and fashion designers on a worldwide level.

The Stage is a hub for models that is not only geared towards booking talent on a national level but also towards planning a fashion show. It will also bring together well-known creatives from around the globe for a networking, conversational, celebratory, and experiential fashion experience, but most importantly for developing skills.
