Glitz Africa Fashion Week 2014 scheduled for November 6th through November 9th under theme “Celebrating African Creativity In Fashion” will be a four day-long event that will include runway shows, exhibitions, workshops, industry networking mixers, pop up shops, and more.
When AfroModTrends takes the runway on Friday, November 7th, the brand will unveil its newest collection christened Versatilis. According to Ami Yomkepe, the founder and creative director of AfroModTrends, “the new Versatilis collection utilizes a two-pronged approach to showcase its versatility; garments which can suit different body types and the multi-use adaptable pieces which can be styled as per occasion”.
The pictogram of the Versatilis is the adinkra symbol NyinNkim which symbolizes adaptability and versality; the underlying tenets for the collection.
“We believe that versatility in fashion cannot be over emphasized and we seek to introduce and build this concept with our collection with multifaceted innovative pieces”, Ami Yomkepe underlined.
Glitz Africa Fashion Week (GAFW) is a unique and innovative event focused on raising global awareness to diverse talent, promoting and celebrating African cultures, and bridging the gap between international buyers and African designers.
