You heard it here first!I' m going to be a blog ambassador for Africa Fashion Week Stockholm this year. This means that Im going to be so lucky to attend all the seminars, parties and fashion shows. I have never been on a fashion event of this magnitude. So this a huge, huge deal for me! The event is in a month so it feels totally suitable to talk about it now.
For those of you who didn't know, Africa Fashion Week Stockholm (AFWS) is a sister event to Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL). AFWL, has hosted five catwalk events since its inception in 2011 and is today Europe's largest catwalk events of African- and African-ispired design. With that said, I think its just about time for Scandinavia to catch up. I don't think you need the whole background story, but AFWS was launched last year for the first time. So this year we'll be celebrating the second annual between the 1st- 3rd of October in Stockholm .The original idea behind the show was to highlight a fashion that because of its origin often remains in the shadows in this part of the world. To complete my honorable duties as a blog ambassador I though that I would from now on going to be doing small post like this where Im going to be sharing updates on the event, cool interviews and fashion inspiration for you all. I'm also going to be sharing what Im going to wear to the show and much, much more.
So, Stay tuned and don't forget to check out AFWS for more information.
