Tanzania’s premier and most celebrated wedding and evening gown designer Mustafa Hassanali painted the runway red on Day 2 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa with his ‘Afrilaal’ collection, ‘Afri’ a short from of Africa and ‘Laal’ Hindi for colour red, suggesting that however vast and varied Africa is, the colour of blood flowing through our veins is same. This collection in addition will be used to advocate awareness of the reality of HIV/AIDS, thus SEE RED, THINK HIV/AIDS.

Afrilaal, Mustafa Hassali’s fifth collection in year 2012, following Afrikalos collection launched in Lagos Nigeria, Wedding collection in Dar es Salaam, Ramadhan Collection in Dakar, Senegal and Pink Desert Collection in Gaborone, Botswana, is possibly the most glamorous of them all.
