"Seeing the lack of exposure around African talent in the fashion and art sector in New Zealand, Makanaka
Tuwe asked herself what could be done about this? What could be done to provide a platform for these
talented individuals? The answer was Africa on my Sleeve.
The vision for Africa on my Sleeve is to create a platform for African fashion and art in New Zealand as well as establish the visibility of African culture in Auckland. This is in a move to eliminate the clichés and stereotypes about the African culture and lifestyle by increasing the visibility of the beauty of the African
talent and culture.
Africa on my Sleeve was an event to recognize African designers and art in the New Zealand community to celebrate the creative African class. “
