Africa Fashion Week

How do I see Africa?  I suppose when I think about Africa I instantly think of Poverty, Crime, Corruption and the shocking visuals of Comic Relief, and I don't think I am alone.  However this weekend I was invited to attend Africa Fashion Week by the fabulous See Africa Differently team.  My view as I went home on Saturday evening was a very different one.  I went away with thoughts of beautiful fashion, amazing textiles and great entrepreneurial spirit.

The day started off with yummylicous pastries at Patisserie Valerie where we got to meet fellow bloggers  and then it was off to the event and the first of 3 fashion shows.  'Ozora' was a real stand out collection with a wide selection of beautiful dresses that could take a girl from the beach to the Red Carpet and the more relaxed beach garments were the real stand out pieces.

This purple chiffon dress with yellow trim looked fresh and fun:

Then this long black dress with intricate beading on the neckline would work really well on the beach or out for dinner and looked really elegant on the catwalk.

Check back tomorrow for more of the great designers that I saw...  but for a chance to win a great bit of African inspired fashion follow @See_Africa on twitter and be in with a chance to win 2 pieces from the Africa Collection on ASOS.
