Gallery: Africa Fashion Week London [Day 3]

This is the Africa Fashion Week London's day 3 recap with a gallery.

On day three, Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) got bolder and more distinctive. Fashion from the continent and its diaspora has a huge potential for growth; it's true that it can become more productive, but we need to be wider in the way we spread the word about it. Exposure is requested for all these incredible talents and visions.


There was a mix of womenswear and menswear on day three but none of the designers tried to impose a single form of beauty — they accompanied each woman in bringing out her own unique beauty through stunning pieces. This said, they celebrated the essence of handcrafts translated in collections with seductive silhouettes for a sensual powerful woman who embodies the quintessence of chic.

Here are more names to keep an eye on: Afro Fashion, AFT (African Fashion Today), Alicia Mullings, Aamaa à la Mode, Arachnid Creations, Didi Creations, Dzyn, Elegante by Tinnah Styling, Ella & Gabby, House of Opiah, Jessicah Baah, Kaveke, Killian De Burgh, Mademoiselle Anglaia, Metisse, Monis Fashion House, Otuedon, Rouge Vallari, Sascha, Simeogieme, Yutees and Zizi Cardow. See the gallery above.
