MINK to provide backstage makeup at Africa Fashion Week London 2011

MINK Artist Management and Makeup School will be providing all the backstage makeup at this year’s Africa Fashion Week London event on the 5th and 6th August at Gibson Hall 13 Bishopsgate London EC2N 3BA. MINK is the leading makeup authority for women of colour in the UK.


The company is made up of a private make-up school for aspiring make-up artists, a specialist makeup artist management agency and an event management arm that produces educational events for the makeup community and make-up enthusiasts.

Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) is an annual event involving two days of free fashion festivities, an extravagant fusion of African culture, fashion, style and music. Celebrating London’s unique and diverse culture heritage, topped with flamboyant mixing of Western and African culture through fashion. AFWL is an event for all, with hourly cat walks shows involving designers using African prints, textiles and fabrics from most African countries. Its vision is for it to become the biggest multicultural fashion showcasing event in London. Your one stop shop for all kinds of African labels. The event is expected to attract VIP guests from different African countries, exhibitors from UK and Africa, top international African fashion designers, emerging African designers and non African designers who use a lot of African prints/patterns in their work. It will also be a showcase of young African models.

Both companies market the beauty of people of colour and actively pursue the promotion of diversity in popular media. This shared ambition provided an opportunity for MINK and AFWL to work together in an intersection of common goals.

MINK will manage all of the makeup requirements for the show, including the provision of a makeup team, sourcing of makeup products and the handling of all makeup enquiries from the press and the general public.
MINK was also the official makeup provider at this year Mahogany Bridal Event in March 2011.
