Fashion Week 2.0 – this time with a cooler location, less wind (not by much) and a rather large designated parking area. Stand-out shows for me personally included Ituen Basi, the assortment of designers at Fashion Revolution, Taibo Bacar, Vernac and Stefania Morland. I was hoping for a more interesting hype from some of the other African designers, but it seems 3rd year fashion school crafting is still the norm there and by our own hands.
On the up side some of the fresh collections showed at Day 1 of the first round a couple weeks ago really made a statement. And if our young creatives are still able to do that then the future is bright. Put on your shades…. the time is now.
