Event description


Background info:

Unlike previously when the African fashion was localized, the industry is becoming more integrated into the fashion industry worldwide. Africans in the diaspora who are conscious of the African fashion have a desire for anything that is Afrocentric. This has transcended to influence the wardrobe of Africans who are home based who for some time back never considered the idea of wearing the African print with their skinny jeans.

The past few years have experienced a shift towards the African fashion. And gradually the African fashion designer has taken the place of global recognition and relevance. The global fashion trends at this time will also reveal the predominance of African fashion represented in African Style dresses, African print skirts, and even swimsuits. The African fabric, particularly the Ankara (African print) is everywhere. Based on these facts, to say that the African fashion is permeating the fabrics of global fashion is entirely justified.
