Last week I attended the African Summer Festival hosted by the African Center which also coincided with the London African Fashion week.
African Fashion Week London(AFWL) celebrates London’s diverse and unique heritage with a mix of Western and African culture. So AFWL showcases Africa’s reach and exotic culture interpreted through rich coloured, vibrant, textured and contemporary designs. The events run across the capital with music performances, fashion catwalks, food stalls all with products from Africa. The main event was held at The Old Truman Brewary in Brick Lane but I managed to catch the show in London’s Covent Garden which had catwalk shows musicians and more. Recent years have seen many runways with African inspired designs and still continues to do so today. See below pictures and video of the music from the event I captured last Sunday.
