Street Style from Africa Fashion Week London 2016
By Yemisi Suleiman
As models strutted the runway in exclusive designs of about 50 designers from across the African continent, more interesting however, was the fashion going on outside the Olympia London, venue of the Africa Fashion Week London 2016.
An equally impressive fashion show takes place in the streets as buyers, editors and fashion enthusiasts from around the globe are seen strutting the street and event venue in very creative ensembles.
African print dresses and shorts continue to rule the scene, accessorised with finely crafted accessories. It does appear that Africans are going back to their roots as many of the guests were spotted wearing their natural hair, a trend that is fast gaining ground with Africans home and abroad.
