The Glitz Africa Fashion Week ended two days ago on the 8th of October, 2017. The three-day fashion event is one of the biggest fashion events in Africa and was held at the Kempinski Hotel. Before the actual event, there was also a GATF street show on the 5th.
Days ago, we wrote about Aboutthatcurvylife.com – ATCL, presenting three Nigerian brands at the Glitz Africa Fashion Week 2017 – and showcasing the first ever inclusion of plus-size fashion apparel in the history of Glitz Africa Fashion Week. While that got everyone looking forward to the event, there were other major highlights.
With the way the event went and all the beautiful pieces that were showcased. It seems vibrant, colourful and perfectly tailored outfits will be taking a huge amount of space in our wardrobes. Especially because these pieces were made by some of the best designers from across Africa. These include TUBO from Nigeria, David Tlale from South Africa and Atto Tetteh from Ghana.
