AFWL 2015 has come and gone and it was a triumph for the continent! You’ve never seen so much beauty, style, aesthetics and talent under one roof! The designers had every cause to be proud and the spotlight on African Fashion was appreciated by Africans and non-Africans alike.
Our celebrated photographer – Michael Tubes was on hand to touch on some of the best moments from the events and the display of work was phenomenal! You can see some more of his splendid work here: https://www.facebook.com/michaeltubescreations; Twitter: https://twitter.com/mtubescreations
Le Ekhaya tags itself as the Home of Afro Chique, and if you see these pieces, you’ll be bound to agree. I want EVERYTHING they do. All. Of. It. The designer, Unique Sibanda, has taken the very spirit of Africa in general and Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in particular, and infused it into clothes that you would wear with pride and say “I am every woman and every woman is me”. Gorgeous.

Bold prints, wearable designs, eye-catching swimwear, Xhosa and Zulu inspired head gears and hats, peplum skirts on fleek, and beautiful evening wear. They were AMAZING!
