The fashion week is in place to highlight plus size models and apparels featuring runway shows, exhibitions amongst other activities put in place.

"The Plus-size Fashion Week Africa was birthed out of the need to stop the stigmatisation and body shaming of the plus-sized woman, we believe that every woman should be comfortable in her skin and body regardless of what the society thinks as long as they are healthy" the organizers revealed and it highlighted just that at the show with plus size model confidently strutting the runway in pieces from different designers (a total of about 20 local and international brands that showcased at the fashion week).
