The 2014 Hub of Africa Fashion Week took place at Galani Coffee and Gallery in Addis Ababa last week. This was an “Editorial Edition” which included a special event at Monarch Hotel on October 25th targeting buyers and fashion industry players. The participating designers were Modanik (DRC); Ruald Rheeder (South Africa); Katungulu (Kenya) Yohannes Sisters (Ethiopia) Cepha Maina (Kenya); Roooi(Nigeria/London): and Mataano (Somalia).
It's amazing to see that there were alot of amazing designers with great talent that took part, but for me personally the designer Roooi was the best in terms of innovation and the complexity in the design process . These designers gave the runway an explosive burst with colours, appliqué and style. The models honestly had a world standard walk. I was truly impressed.
I have uploaded images of my best pieces from each designers .
