AFW 2017 was absolutely amazing! I had the pleasure of working back of house as a stylist assistant and it was awesome! This year was AFW’s first seven day fashion week. Although I didn’t get the chance to attend any of the week events I got news that they were all a lot of fun and ran smoothly.
I got the full back of house experience of a fashion show from fittings, to designer relations, to make up I did it all! The pieces were stunning! All of the designers’ definitely had some one of a kind work. I love African Fashion it makes a statement, it’s vibrant and exotic. We debuted our first runway show with Ankara prints, which is a mix of bright colored print featuring floral and abstract shapes. Sunday’s show featured a Kitoko theme but had a wide range to showcase. We showed off fairytale wedding dresses and sexy silhouette pieces as well!
My favorite designer was Rocky Boston (www.rockyboston.com) she had some of the most dramatic, and dope pieces! You can go to the AFW’s Instagram page or official website for details on all of the designers and where you can get quality African outfits!
