Fashion has reached it peak in Africa , and many African cities have been putting together fashion week-like events to celebrate African fashion and designers.These events give encouragement and opportunity to new talents in lesser-known enterprises and attempts to show the world the diversity, originality and richness of local African cultures.
My picks of Africa's top fashion cities are ; Johannesburg, Lagos, Dakar, Dar es Salaam and Abuja.
1.JOHANNESBURG , SOUTH AFRICA
Johannesburg is one of Africa's most popular city and its no wonder it made it to my list .It has more resources than most other Africa countries to pull off such events.The showcase features the nation's best designers unveilling their creative forecast of the season's trends to a global audience of media, fashion buyers and fashion consumers.
Organizers of the SA fashion week state that it is their mission to take African fashion to the world.
2. LAGOS , NIGERIA
“Lagos International Fashion Week (LIFW) takes place in Lagos Nigeria and is being produced by Mahogany Productions & Glasgow Fashion Week. Lagos made it to my list because I know a lot of very talented and creative designers from Nigeria. Nigerians are taking over, the music business, modeling industry ,movie industry and now the fashion industry. Lagos fashion week should definitely be something to watch out for.
