Monday the 28th of August I AM Mode visited the African Fashion Designer Expo in the World Fashion Centre in Amsterdam. During this expo designers from different countries in Africa showed their designs. The space was huge, but sadly not all the designers could make it. But the ones that were present, presented beautiful pieces.
I arrived just in time for the fashion show of 3 designers. I really liked the first denim pieces decorated with African print. Sharon, the second designer, included bridal dresses in her fashion show. Gorgeous! Fun fact: I once modelled for her and her webshop. For pictures and more of her designs: http://www.be-first.nl/
And last but not least the Ghanaian designer Maunge showed his gorgeous accessories in the catwalk. He has the most fabulous handmade shoes and bags. And all made from real leather. Check out his Instagram account for more of his fabulous designs!
It was a nice fashion event but I wish it was better promoted. ain contrary to other “African” fashion events, this was organised by Africans for African designers. I hope for another event with more visitors and the same talent!
