African Fashion Week Toronto 2014 Part 2- The main event


My beautiful people! Time is short and the pictures are many so I'll keep it short and sweet.
African Fashion Week Toronto is giving me so much life right now! Just when I thought there could be no more designs I had never seen, these designers come and show me "You ain't seen nothing yet!"



  My designer,  Miss Beida fashion, whose Dashiki fabrics you love so much, won the award for Best student designer! Yay! 
 ZnaK, the amazing Cameroonian designer with whom I also collaborate also presented a new collection!
 I was able to go backstage, chat with some designers who came all the way from Botswana and Eritrea and take loads and loads of pictures. It's amazing how much talent we have right here in Toronto as well as back home.
Without further ado, here are some pictures!

**I apologize in advance if I mix up any designers' names! There were some changes to the schedule that I tried to take note of but to err is human. Do correct me if I am wrong somewhere!**



Yvonne from The Kaleidoscopian was in attendance!!





 I couldn't resist these! Guess which one I got??
