On Tuesday, 15th January, Berlin saw its first Africa and Africa-inspired fashion show- Africa Fashion Day Berlin, and I was the Head Stylist of the Runway event. The event was in partnership with the official sponsors of Berlin Fashion Week- Mercedes Benz.
This position came with a lot of responsibilities, some of which were sourcing accessories for each of the 3 Runway designers, attending castings and fittings, assembling my team of assistants and dressers, deciding which model walked for each designer and much more.
The three very talented, runway designers featured were-
Adama Paris– A Senegalese fashion designer, whose aim is to share with all modern women, ‘one fashion without borders’. Her designs have been featured in reputable press such as Vogue Italia.
Nomi by Naomi– This fashion label was founded by Naomi Spieker, her brand combines, ‘African style with Western trends from here and now’.
Romero Bryan– his decadent and luxurious, statement pieces have been worn by fashion trend-setters such as Beyoncé Knowles, Kate Moss, Heidi Klum and Alek Wek.
