African Icons Bring Their 'A' Game to NYFW

ARISE magazine put together another stunning showcase of iconic African design to launch New York Fashion Week and I really wish I could have been there! ARISE have put on many a showcase which I have written about HERE and each has been better than the last. This latest presentation was celebration of 'African Icons' and showcased their talent to the US and the world.
The five superstar designers showing their Spring/Summer 2013 collections were Ozwald Boateng, Gavin Rajah, Tiffany Amber, Tsemaye Binitie and AMFW designer of the year Maki Oh. Here are some clips that I managed to pilfer from Youtube, so we can all pretend we were there too!
