Sheraton Addis Hotel together in partnership with Our Father’s Kitchen conducted the first Bag Show that showcases different designers’ works that are based in Ethiopia.
The event was a platform for the work of some of Ethiopia’s top bag designers through a fashion show and a pop-up shop at the Sheraton Addis Hotel. Great emphasis was given to female designer and local workmanship.
Ethiopia’s leather industry has shown considerable improvement over the last decade and is currently one of Ethiopia’s thriving industries. Using modern technology allows Ethiopia to be globally competitive. The Bag Show encourages designers to design, create and benefit from the final product versus the raw product.
One of the main objectives of The Bag Show is supporting Our Father’s Kitchen, a feeding
program for needy children. All profits from the event will support Our Father’s Kitchen and each designer will donate a single one-of-a-kind bag that will be auctioned during the event.
The Bag Show has provided a platform for Ethiopian designers to market their bags locally and showcase their talent and skill that has put many of them in the global arena and also encourage and promote upcoming designers. The following Ethiopian designers will be participating during the event.
