Bespoke couture designer Ozwald Boateng treated his guests to an explosion of colour and African-inspired prints and textures with a grand fashion show on Sunday night at the Apollo Theater, Harlem New York.

The show was in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance and Ozwald who recently dressed Idris Elba for his wedding to Somalian wife Sabrina Dhowre, took the opportunity to launch his first womenswear collection.

He said he had chosen the Apollo, the ‘epicentre for African American culture’, because he was committed to building a bridge between Africa and the African diaspora.

Designer, Dapper Dan Harlem, actor, Omari Hardwick, models Adut Akech, Cindy Bruna, Maria Borges as well as Nigerian journalists, Nikki and Lola Ogunnaike, and more were in attendance. Musicians Justin Skye also attended with Jidenna and Diggy Simons part of the model lineup for the show.
