Highlights of the Africa International Fashion Week 2015

Fashion events are known to be thrilling, high-adrenaline, exciting but always exhausting period, that often times, it is a daunting task to process an in-depth, thoughtful and original coverage until afterward. That gives a sneak-peak reason for writing a little late about the AIFW, but all the same here’s some info you cannot be uninformed about the event.

Africa International Fashion Week 2015 was hosted and held at Warri, the capital of Delta State with over 20 creative and talented fashion Designers showcasing their collections. The event which lasted for 3 days was, as expected, had a massive turn out of audience from various part of the state. Desopadec was obviously the main sponsor of the fashion week, considering the publicity materials before, during and after the event. The Designer’s row comprises of indigenes and others who flew in from outside the state and outside the country respectively. I’ll take some time to do a run-down of the Fashion Designers that showcased at the event.

There are some favorites among the designers but you have to see the collections to pick your favorite, generally they were all so amazing that the audience became seasonal photographers and videographers capturing as much of the visuals as their smartphones would allow them. The Gala night (last day) wasn’t all about watching, but some “lighters” were chipped into the program such as a joke session by the “Multi-talented” Efe, MC by Denrele, Music by Vector, and a light menu of Cocktail and Snacks.

Selected pictures of the event are published here but you can head on to the official Africa International Fashion Week website to view detailed collections of each of the designers showcase. Lookout for some of the designers special feature on vogueinspire.
