FAMILIAR FACES in African fashion will return to London later this year to celebrate some of the most exciting designers from the continent.
Africa Fashion Week, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, will feature a programme of catwalk shows and talks, as well as giving ticket holders the chance to buy African food and fashions from exhibitors.
South Africa’s Kwa Zulu Natal collective, Nigeria’s Valentina Utoh of Onyx by Valentina and Ghana’s Samson Soboye are among those who will showcase their latest designs at the event, which runs from August 6-8.
Accessory brand Aphia Saki, Precious Lulu and House of Sluvin are also confirmed for the catwalks.
Since its inception, Africa Fashion Week has provided a platform for more than 900 emerging designers and exhibitors from Africa, Europe and America.
This year organisers are introducing a Graduate Fashion and Design Day as part of the programming, giving new designers the opportunity to take part in the catwalk and exhibition.
Universities and higher education institutions are invited to register students to take part.
The organisers of Africa Fashion Week are also anticipating and encouraging more ethical and sustainable designs to hit the catwalk with its #TrashToTreasure initiative.
