Africa Fashion Week in New York kicked off last week Thursday and knocked it out of the park showcasing a great range of designers who all individually showed us what their line was about. Let’s go through some of my favorite runway shots to get familiar with the designers courtesy of Afrikan Spot!
UK based designer Kosibah is originally a bridal couture designer (who by the way may just be designing my future wedding gown) made it known that has ventured into making dresses and evening wear as well.
If you’re from the DC area, you would know of this duo, Cote Minou! Their collection consisted of funky separates from jackets, mini skirts, tapered pants and party dresses. I loved these pieces, the third outfit in particular.
New York based Nigerian designer, Tosin Sowunmi of Arewa Designs made me proud with her uber edgy collection consisting of the colors yellow, black, teal and gold. I especially love the oversized yellow embellished jacket.
Chianu International is a fairly new to me but I couldn’t help but fall in love with these pieces.
All in all, I cant wait for next year’s line up.
