African Fashion Week London taking place on the 5th and 6th August 2011 at Gibson Hall in London is a serious not to miss event! They hype, the talk, the exciting is already in place. The expectancy is high but I believe the event will represent and be one to be respected in the official fashion calenders.
It is an event that is open to designers of all origins and ethnicities providing a great opportunity for all aspiring or emerging designers to use it as a platform to showcase their talent! there will be a variety of designers taking place and will sure to not disappoint. But we must remember the aim to showcase, promote and to sell through African fashion is key. Those of us that love to purchase African designer fashion or made in Africa fashion should attend and make sure we connect with designers afterwards and check out their websites. I am sure we will find many beautiful original pieces we will want to purchase too.
Sponsored by Berekete, Rukkies Concept & Fashions Finest the participation fees for the UK resident designers that are offered places to participate in AFWL is covered. The long list of media partners helps to lift the importance of this event to a wide market of readers and followers.
The schedule so far is looking exciting with shows taking place over the two days do check out their Facebook Page and Twitter, as well as the main website to get your hands on a ticket which are now open to download. Dont miss out on this event.
Even more exciting is the launch of the Africa Fashion Week Boutique launching this year! This whole event is proving to be a very promising venture that not only showcases the designers but provides the opportunity to purchase and allows African fashion to be invested into and therefore creates, most importantly, VALUE added to the designs through sales.
Do not leave it to the last minute but we urge you to pick up your tickets now and pencil the event in your diary.
