Gallery: Africa Fashion Week London [Day 2]

This is the second day's gallery recap of the Africa Fashion Week London 2013.

This was our favorite day on the entire Africa Fashion Week London event. An experience full of beauty and creativity, the designers involved were clearly inspired for these new collections. The creative process is something unique to each individual and on Day 2, we witnessed different strong handcrafts and signatures from the likes of M-Shade, Ruuts Arts and Creation, Slu by Sluuvin Designs, Thula Sindi, Giberky, Moofa, Crown Rose, Rya-V Jewelry and Established Beauxtique — all names to remember. They brought us a true modern African view on what's really happening on the continent style-wise, highlighting the international trendsetter and a place in constant evolution. Enjoy the recap gallery above and check out our gallery from AFWL Day 1.
