Londoners and visitors of the world – It’s time to bring fashion back to the Games by strutting or in my case, sprinting down to Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL), which is sure to ‘bring East London to life’ on the 3rd and 4th August 2012 at Spitalfields Market. With over 10,000 visitors expected, 100 models and 50 designers – This is your chance to bag an Olympic Gold bargain from a vast selection of unique and stylish designs from the worlds leading African inspired designers – and best of all, the event is free!
The first AFWL launched last year to commemorate London’s unique, diverse, cultural heritage and to showcase the, ‘flamboyant mixing of Western and African culture through fashion’, by showcasing both emerging and established UK and non-UK based designers inspired by Africa – Whilst simultaneously promoting the richness of Africa’s ethnic culture through exquisite modern and futuristic designs.
As the AFWL website states, the event will be:
“A day full of gorgeous outfits composed of luxury fabrics and attention grabbing colours draped over exotic models on a catwalk, rows and rows of hand crafted accessories available to oogle and purchase, an African fashion glossy magazine to flip through, a VIP lounge to rub shoulders with fellow fashionistas while toasting with your drink of choice, and festive music that’ll have you shimmying down the runway in your mind. That is fashion heaven, and Africa Fashion Week London welcomes you.”
