Top African designers Catherine-Moniue and Sly Monay set to showcase at Africa Fashion Week London 2016. AFWL 2016 will be taking place on Fri 9 and Sat 10th of September at West Hall Olympia London.
Catherine-Monique as a brand is about bringing African culture together with western culture through high fashion. It’s about providing alternative ways of wearing African prints with a current twist.
Her inspiration for collection she will be showcasing at AFWL 2016 is birds. The silhouette of the birds and how the feathers are built up and layered to make the bird, married with African prints. Birds and the African prints carry bright and beautiful colouring, which make it ideal to work together.
A fashion forward, innovative brand that designs and produces male and female bespoke and ready-to-wear collections.Sly Monay came into existence in 2012 as a result of looking at the African culture, way of life, style, innovation and taking fashion to the next level.
