I attended the Day 1 exhibition of the AFWL 2013 show and met with a few designers and their unique brands. Engaging with each designer and getting to learn about how they started, their inspirations, and where they hope to be in the near future, was definitely the highlight of my time there. Take a look at a few of my sneek peeks.

Vou Brown is a boutique that houses a wide range of designers. I had to take a few snaps of my favourite designer pieces; accessories in ankara are always favourite wardrobe piece to brighten up any staple number.


I was privileged to meet with Dionne, the owner of another unique accessories brand. I fell in love with a few items that had particularly afro-centric prints, which are also a great blend with every day wardrobe items.

Kiyana Wraps is a revolutionary brand that makes head wraps a convenient go-to piece, and a permanently styled accessory. The variety of colours and textures of these wraps also means head wraps aren't just for particular garments. Not to mention that these wraps can be re-styled!
