The second edition of the Bellafricana Summer Pop-up London is finally here. Who is excited?
After several years of fostering connections and promoting African craftsmanship & creativity in Nigeria & Africa as a whole, Bellafricana is yet again ready to captivate the hearts of Londoners with an extraordinary showcase of talent and creativity.
The Summer Pop-Up Event will take place over seven exciting days, tentatively from Thursday, the 4th of July to Wednesday the 10th of July, at a prime location in London 14 Percy Street, London. W1T 1DR (near Oxford Street, off Tottenham Court Road). This event will bring together a curated selection of the finest African brands, offering a captivating array of handcrafted products across various categories, including fashion, accessories, home decor, beauty, and more.
After successfully hosting one of the biggest summer pop-up London last year with people traveling from different locations to have a feel of African’s culture and creativity, we had over 21000 shoppers and £67,800 sales made with just 20+ vendors. It was really absolutely amazing. Also, with a proven track record of hosting various major pop-up events in Nigeria, Bellafricana has gained a reputation for curating exceptional collections that embody the spirit of Africa. This year’s Summer Pop-Up Event in London promises to be a celebration of African culture, craftsmanship, and entrepreneurial spirit.
Attendees will have the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the vibrancy of African creativity. From intricately woven textiles, accessories to bold and contemporary designs, each product tells a story and reflects the rich heritage and diversity of the African continent. Engage with passionate creators, hear the inspiration behind their works, and discover the remarkable talents that Bellafricana’s community represents.
“Our vision at Bellafricana is to showcase the beauty and innovation that Africa possesses,” says Bukky Asehinde, Founder and CEO of Bellafricana. “We are very glad to host the 2nd edition of the Summer Pop-Up London, a city renowned for its love of creativity and diverse cultural experiences. Our aim is to bridge the gap between African creatives and the global market, while offering Londoners a unique and authentic shopping experience.”
