Mercedes Benz Fashion is one of the most talked about events on the social calendar and a must attend for all the Fashionistas alike. For me it’s always a fun opportunity to catch up with old friends and have an excuse to dress up and soak up all the trends and fall in love with new African designers. This year African Fashion International( AFI) has collaborated with The Threaded Man to showcase what they have called an ‘Xperience‘ that sets to enthrall us style, art , culture and the voices of African Fashion. It goes without saying that this years fashion week is one thats making history as it will be the first to be in partnership with a young entrepreneur whose on the pulse of all things fashion. The theme being #rootedinstyle encourages us to reflect on our personal style as young Africans and how much of that is a reflection of us and what we stand for in the world. With just under a month left till the big week, we’ll keep you in the loop with all that you need to know as we lead up to it!
