Every year, the city hosts many fashion events, including “Les Féeries” (The Fairies), the Miss Côte d’Ivoire, Miss Abidjan District, Miss Christmas (for 6–11 year olds), and Miss Awoulaba pageants (very prestigious). Every year, the Yéhé Fashion Show, a celebration of African fashion, is held, as is the International Festival of Lingerie and Beauty of Abidjan (FILBA).
Abidjan is also the headquarters for Ivory Coast’s fashion designers, who are considered as the greatest in Africa, such as Gilles Touré (designer for Miss Côte d’Ivoire) and Pathéo.
