AFWL AFRICA FASHION WEEK LONDON 2018

Representing Afro Culture at AFWL London 2018 on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August 2018 at Freemason's Hall was a real treat. Afro Culture's mission is to showcase and connect diasporic talents and this Fashion Show is all about promoting African and African-inspired design talent. Since its launch in 2011, AFWL has already showcased over 800 emerging designers and exhibitors from all over Africa, Europe and the Americas.

We partnered with Graphik Vision to capture the feel of the day, as well as amazing designs and concepts ( See above youtube link).

I particularly enjoyed seeing some African Royals, such as Queen Diambi Kabatusuila Tshiyoyo Muata of Kasai Kingdom of Democratic Republic of Congo, participating and contributing to the event.

We love to see proud Africans boosting their economy and talents.

See picture below and link for more info on AFWL.
