Take a look at these glamorous African styles. The beautiful attires were showcased on the runway at South Africa Fashion Week 2012.
In the last few years, African fashion has been tasking the centre stage as more and more people are embracing the colourful and bold prints love by African men and women. As such, fashion weeks like this one and several other ones are spring up to provide a platform for African and African inspired designs and designers.
Today’s African designers are combining African fabric with western fabrics to give Africaan styles a more cosmopolitan look.
African styles being made today are not only typical native styles that can only be worn at traditional African events but to almost any type of gatherings.
The African styles we see today can be worn by a bride for her wedding. The can also be worn by bridesmaid, on the red carpet, to a prom party and much more.
Almost any style that you can think of, can be designed with the African print fabric, which was something that was not done some years ago.
Apart from the styles, a lot of African designers are upping their game. Gone are the days the most of them were just tailors. The new generation African designer is attending fashion schools and some are even gaining experience in top fashion cities like Paris and New York before setting up their own brand.
