This year, Dakar Fashion Week is all grown up and celebrating its eighteenth birthday! So what better opportunity to sit down with the event's founder, Adama Ndiaye. She has been fighting to promote African fashion for decades: through her own collections and also through the Black Fashion Weeks she's organised. Back in 2014, the now 44-year-old designer and business owner was named one of the 10 most influential Africans by FRANCE 24's sister radio station RFI. She tells us her story.
