6 Aug

Africa has got itself a bad reputation. We remember it for all the wrong reasons, famine, hunger, more recently drought and hardship. But there is SO much beauty on its soil. Often creativity is one of few things that brings unity between otherwise contrasting parties. For the first time African Fashion Week was shown in the UK, an even that most people do not know exists! I believe showing it in the UK was a smart move, bridging a gap and creating an international audience. It was held from the 5th -6th of August 2011! Really hoping its on again next year!
