Africa Fashion Weekend London 2015
August in London was supposed to be the height of summer with warm weather, lighter days but I think this year the sunshine didn’t get rsvp and was sadly missing for Londoners.
Much to our delight the Africa Fashion Weekend brought Londoners alive. Held over two days Londoners had the pleasure of welcoming some of the best African designers to the City. The event now in its 4th year kicked off with the launch of the face of Africa Fashion Week, won by Maggie Smith. With over 40 designers from Africa and diaspora showcasing their work. View Gallery
