I can honestly say that I was impressed by most of the designers and collections at the show.

It was very inspiring to have had a first hand witness of what the African fashion industry has to offer. From modern and chic styles with African influences and aesthetics to the clean cut and Gothic impressions, the designers brought their A-game to Olympia West where the fashion show was held.

Designer- Porjia Thai Printer

This collection was also one of my favourite. The designers had traveled all the way from Thailand to make the show and the reception they got was definitely worth it I believe. Everyone was amazed and pleasantly surprised as the models walked down the runway to afrobeats music. Word association- FLIRTY CHIC. They were also the only other designer to have used male models.For the male collection, the word that sprung to mind was STUD.
