Designers from African Fashion Week NY Speak to Precollege Students!

Last week, on Wednesday, July 13, Precollege students got the opportunity to meet upcoming African fashion designers whose work is inspired by African themes. FIT’s International Trade and Marketing Programs coordinated the event which aligned with African Fashion Week NY. You may recall hearing about this from Amira’s blog post last week. Miss it? You can check it out here.

Here is a list of the participants and a few shots from the event!

AsakeOge Couture was founded by Asake Agoro from Nigeria. The Label was launched February 2009 at the London Metropolitan Fashion and Dance Charity Show when she was invited to come up with a collection for the fundraiser. A 3rd generation seamstress, growing up around the creative energy in a couture household enabled her to design and make garments for herself from the age of 15. She has honed an innate skill by producing one-off pieces that soon drew international attention.
