In no particular order, here are the designers who made me appreciate African fashion, even more, this year. I was very much looking forward to the best of Africa Fashion Week 2018. With the Africa Fashion Week London platform becoming the biggest in Europe showcasing over 800 emerging designers & exhibitors, from Africa, Europe, and America, to almost 70,000 visitors and is now a highlight on the annual fashion calendar in London.
What I like about AFWL, it brings value to designers through, contacts, experience, and knowledge within the fashion community. Where for this year, I got to meet so many friends and just catch up and truthfully I had a blast.
Fashion for Africa competition and pop up;
The pop up was last Friday in the popular China Town. It was all about Discovering African designers and creatives at the one-day event in the heart of the West End. With the entry being free, it meant: shopping to the max, networking with fellow artists, and entertainment at the African themed reception. View Post
