ARISE Fashion Week returned on Friday December 11 but not without some noteworthy changes. The continent’s most prominent fashion show has had to adapt amid the coronavirus pandemic by going virtual and streaming to a global audience across multiple platforms.

Kicking off the show with 20 designers showcasing in 4 batches of 5 designers each, designers and their models shuttled from an hotel for the shows following a carefully planned COVID compliant transit schedule.

Day 1 started with a stunning exhibition by Onalaja and ran to Wuman‘s graphic presentation. Fashion gives us fantasy, dreams and hope — themes that ran through the collections of the contestants of Arise 30 under 30.

Africa’s biggest stars such as WizkidWurld, Wavy the creator and The Cavemen were also part of the fashion frenzy, spiking the evening with stellar performances.

Pepper Row is a Sustainable Neo-Luxury Ready to wear Fashion Brand. The brand was founded by Omafume Niemogha who also doubles as the Creative Director. The young designer pushed the boundaries of creativity in her collection that it is hard to ignore the geometric construction of art in her pieces.

From head to toe, there was an element of surprise. Her female models donned only one earring, skirts are layered with accessories underneath. See more runway looks below.
