Interview with Kamari Ademiluyi Co-Founder of AFWL

From humble beginnings just 5 years ago, Africa Fashion Week London 2015 occupied an entire hall at London’s famous Olympia Exhibition Centre. We spoke exclusively with Co-Founder Kamari Ademiluyi about the show’s success and his company’s plans for the future.

What started with 20 designers and 5 exhibitors has now grown into something of an institution.

While The Africa Market in Old Spitalfields provides a good venue for designers to put their goods in front of passing shoppers once a month, Africa Fashion Week London is on a whole other scale.

The fashions on display certainly mixed the creative edge along with day & evening wearable pieces. Here’s a quick slide show of some of the brightest pieces.
