AFRICA FASHION WEEK LONDON 2018



When you think of African Fashion, what comes to mind? Is it the vibrant colours that can be seen a mile away? Or the unique set of patterns that dominate the fabrics? Whichever it may be, Africa Fashion Week London is back for its 8th annual event!

Being a part of Africa Fashion Week London was every inch of a cultural celebration of African fashion, art and beauty. Hosted at the Freemasons  Hall in London, Africa Fashion Week London showcased hundreds of unique and vibrant collections from designers, models and stylists across the UK, Europe, US and Africa.

It was my second time coming to this event and I was honoured to interview models, designers, stylists and the public at the event to get a glimpse of what its like for them to be a part one of  Europe's largest fashion events. Across the historic hallways was filled with the public who seemed intrigued and excited to experience stands with traditional style Liputa (which is the name given to the patterned fabric from D.R. Congo) Ankra and other African materials all hanged up in eye-catching designs of bikinis, evening gowns, day dress and more.

The event concluded with the famous catwalk, putting on a display with hundreds of unique pieces , each designer bringing their own flavour and inspiration to their collections. Nothing was short of the imagination when it came to showcasing what Africa fashion is in 2018.   

With platforms like Africa Fashion Week London, its a vital way to bring to light some of the beauty to come out of the second largest continent in the world. For those living in London, we are fortunate enough to be spoiled for choice when it comes to the Africa market from traditional food, clothes and beauty products and after a successful weekend of African fashion, the futures seems vibrant for Africa Fashion Week London in its endless goal to celebrate and promote African businesses on a global market to create recognisable brands and in time, a positive social change in Africa.
