Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL) organisers are delighted to announce UK indie rock band Noisettes front woman and all around fashion icon Shingai Shoniwa, as AFWL 2013 Ambassador and Celebrity Face for the third edition of the fashion event taking place from 1st to 3rd August, 2013.
Africa Fashion Week London 2013 will see over 100 African designers and exhibitors showcasing their designs at the event, taking place in the impressive Old Truman Brewery space, just off Brick Lane. This year’s AFWL is set to be bigger and better than ever, and will be the largest fashion event in Europe dedicated to African and African-inspired fashion. Organisers are expecting over 20,000 people to attend the event over the course of the three days.
Of Zimbabwean descent, London-born singer and bassist, Shingai Shoniwa boasts a career which has stretched over seven years, with a string of hits such as “Don’t Upset The Rhythm” and “Never Forget You” already under her belt and a fashion following that could rival Grace Jones.
With Mrs. Fifi Ejindu, the Nigeria-based architect and businesswoman and Yinka Shonibare MBE, the London-based globally celebrated Nigerian fine artist as patrons, this year's event once again promises to be a huge success.
