African designers take London by storm

STYLE: Africa Fashion Week London

THIS YEAR'S Africa Fashion Week London 2017 sponsored by Pak's Hair & Cosmetics, had a huge impact on the city of London, as it was hosted at the historic Freemasons Hall, in Covent Garden.

More than 5,000 afrocentric fashion-conscious fashionista turned up to see one of six amazing runway shows, as designers such as Mary Martin London, Jesu Segun, Dahrio, Paledi Segapo, Soboye and Valerie Azinge just to name a few, completely mesmerised the audience and set an amazingly high bar for fashion on every creative level for the world to see.

The show was also attended by a number of high profile figures within our community including the honourable Mrs Olufolake Abdulrazaq, a diplomate and head of Consular, Education & Welfare for the Nigerian High Commission, Joseph Farodoye, also known as Joseph the Dreemer, founder of Africa Property Invest and Chief Thinker at The Estate Property Guide, one of the media partners for the event, Kate Osamor MP for the Labour Party, Miss Barbados UK, Peter Mudahy one of the directors of the sponsors - Pak's Cosmetics and a host of influencers, bloggers and mainstream media.

It was an extremely well organised two days, of culture, opulence, innovation, out-of-the-box design all infused with the unmistakable warmth and rhythmic vibes of Africa. A job well done by show founder and organiser Ronke Ademoluyi and the Africa Fashion Week London Team.

Over the years, Africa Fashion Week London has showcased over 800 emerging designers and exhibitors from Africa, Europe and America to almost 70,000 visitors including buyers, retailers, influential industry professionals and mainstream media.
