New York Fashion Week ended just hours ago after a week-long of Spring/ Summer 2015 collections. And before we catch a breather, we quickly move on to London Fashion Week for the next round of the S/S 15 season. The line-up might not be as strong as that of New York in terms of African designers showing, but we are keeping our eyes peeled nonetheless. PPQ is first on schedule with an evening showcase set for 20:00 – 20:30 London time.
The presentation will take place at the W1 later today (Friday 12 September).
If you know of any other African Designers showcasing at London Fashion Week this season, please send an email to Info@HauTeFashionAfrica.com so we can add them.

Elegant with unmissable structured silhouettes was the theme for Deola (previously Deola Sagoe) latest collection. The looks came in lush, shiny fabrics, papaya inspired prints, structured neck-lines and pops of print detailing. The clothes were kept simple yet still very noticeable. A hint of mesh and cut outs here and there was seen in some of the looks. It was all kept easy and clean, much like Spring if you ask me. Understated but with a strong mature vibe.
Much like their mothers collection above, Clan also made use of the silky fabric for Spring/Summer 2015. A sporty aesthetic was cultivated and tweaked into casual wear. Basket-Ball inspired t-shirt-like dresses with words like ri-laks and kair free splashed across the chest area. Sweat-pant cuffs and waistlines on shiny pants, fish net looks, five of them in total, all worn in different ways, first over a cropped white t-shirt and in another instance worn as a dress and so forth. In some instances though, the fabrics looked a bit heavy and thick for Spring/Summer.

Black and white seemed to be the focal point of this season at Edun. The clothes came in either of the two colours with black and white dot details. Pleats were seen on the upper body with some of the looks accessorized by a ring belt. Same texture and colour layering, suede-like textures which l thought were a bit thick for Spring. Lose fits, in most cases came in unflattering styles. Both The tunic inspired and long sleeved tops paired with those belts created a martial arts (karate) vibe. Strips of different materials and patterns were added on sleeves and hem lines. There were yeses and nos at the same time. In perfect simplicity l wasn’t all impressed. If anything l’m still wondering.

Light colours in their purest form always catch my attention. And being a simple dresser myself, l tend to appreciate clothes on the simple end of the stick, with the right construction and tailoring that is.
Review to follow shortly
