What Exactly is ATIA?

What is Afternoon Tea in Ankara?

ATIA is a unique new event aimed at young people aspiring to get into fashion. ATIA aims to give youngsters an invaluable insight into what is a very competitive industry by awarding them the opportunity to partake in a range of useful and relevant activities as well as networking events. The event is hosted by popular fashion blogger Temi Otedola, who was recently featured in British vogue and has held various top tier positions within the industry- most recently as an official ambassador of Lagos Fashion&Design week.

The concept of the event derives from Temi’s own passion to promote Nigeria’s culture on a global platform. Indeed, few are as qualified to oversee such a blend; as a Nigerian schooled in the UK Temi is as well travelled as all intuitive designers are. The chief purpose of ATIA is to provide much needed backing to the efforts of emerging ethnic talent within fashion and the wider media, in an effort to combat the vast underrepresentation still symptomatic with these industries. As a traditional delicacy introduced into Britain in the early 1840’s, Afternoon tea signifies the British value that Temi holds….meanwhile Ankara (commonly known as African print) is a traditional vibrant garment that visually represents Temi’s culture which she proudly embraces. Botth aspects fused together creates ‘Afternoon Tea In Ankara’ (ATIA) – a celebration set to simultaneously educate and empower. Candidates are encouraged to wear traditional attire to fit in with the theme of the event.
