By Helena Biggs | 07 January 2022 | Events, News
Tech entrepreneur, Candy-Ellie Graham, has founded Cultural Style Week, a movement that will take place 21-27 May 2022 to encourage people to boldly embrace their cultural heritage through fashion, hair and beauty.
In partnership with hair and beauty platform, StylzMag, Cultural Style Week will open with a fashion show and launch party in London to set the stage for a schedule of educational and inspiring events.
The week-long celebration also aims to inspire a larger movement of people from all cultures to proudly share their cultural fashion, hair and beauty styles at work, school and on social media using the hashtag #culturalstyleweek.
“The Western world is home to millions of diaspora and immigrants who often need to reserve their traditional style for cultural events,” says Graham.
“I wanted to start a movement by creating this inclusive event that encourages people to proudly embrace their cultural fashion, hair and beauty.
“I also wanted to showcase some of the amazing service providers hidden in small communities who can help people do just that.”
“Cultural Style Week will be a unique and beautiful experience for all.”
The start of the event coincides with the United Nations World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. The day recognises the important contributions that different cultures make to global development and harmony.
The live Cultural Style Week events will include:
- Fashion shows displaying traditional clothing and designs from around the world
- Mini marketplace pop-ups to support small businesses and designers
- Community-based workshops for interactive learning opportunities
- Live masterclasses and interviews
- Art collaborations
