Fashion week has officially kicked off in New York since yesterday, Thursday 4th of September and we are quite excited. We simply cannot wait to see all the new collections that will be showcased from some of our favourite designers as they unveil their Spring/Summer 2015 collections.
Remarkably there are quite a number of African designers to look forward to during the 2014 New York Fashion Week and we are going to do our best to keep our eyes on them. African designers have been doing wonderfully well in bridging the boundaries of the fashion industry and we are especially pleased that the world is paying more attention to the truly spectacular designers.
The New York Fashion Week will run from Thursday, 4th of September to Thursday, 11th of September. Some of the African designers you can expect to see are David Tlale (South Africa), Lisa Folawiyo (Nigeria), Deola Sagoe (Nigeria) and more.
