Africa Fashion Week London is a celebration of African design talent and the diverse ethnic influences that contribute to fashion in the UK. This exciting event will champion new and emerging designers who are inspired by the rich culture of Africa and incorporate this heritage into contemporary design.
Top designers will be showcasing collections on the catwalk including British designer Ade Bakare from Nigeria and Adama Paris from Senegal, whose designs are popular in New York city and Tokyo boutiques.
You’ll also have the chance to discover emerging designers such as Tsholo from Botswana, who is gaining a following for her non-conformist fashion approach.
The show will also allow you to peruse and purchase stunning pieces and unique creations from handpicked designers and brands. If the catwalk shows leave you inspired, head to the Market Place where you can source from African and African inspired designers working in the UK; no matter your budget. Buy your next hero piece from over 50 carefully selected designers and brands and make sure your wardrobe is on-trend for the season ahead.
