AFWL leading the surge in sustainable fashion.
Sustainable fashion is becoming increasingly important in the fashion industry, and many designers are now incorporating sustainable practices into their collections. This shift in the fashion industry was recently highlighted at Africa Fashion Week London 2022 that focused solely on sustainable fashion.
Africa Fashion Week London 2022 was held at a large venue in the heart of the city, showcased collections from several designers who are committed to using sustainable materials and ethical practices in their designs. The show was attended by fashion enthusiasts, influencers, and industry professionals, all eager to see the latest trends in sustainable fashion.
The show started with a speech from the co-founder Kamari Ademiluyi, who emphasized the importance of sustainability in the fashion industry. He highlighted the negative impact that fast fashion has on the environment, and how it’s time for the industry to change its ways.
The first collection showcased was by a designer who uses only recycled materials in their designs. The collection featured pieces made from old jeans, discarded t-shirts, and vintage fabrics. The designer showed how it’s possible to create beautiful and unique clothing while being environmentally conscious.
The next collection featured a designer who works exclusively with organic cotton. The designer’s pieces were simple, elegant, and classic, but made with a sustainable twist. She showcased a range of dresses, skirts, and blouses, all made from the softest organic cotton and dyed with natural, plant-based dyes.
Another designer featured at the show was committed to using eco-friendly fabrics like bamboo and hemp. The collection was a mix of athleisure wear and casual clothing, all made with sustainable materials. The designer also showcased a range of accessories made from recycled materials, like bags made from old bicycle tires.
One of the most exciting parts of the show was the finale, where all the designers came out on stage together to showcase a collaborative collection. The collection featured pieces made from upcycled fabrics, recycled materials, and sustainable fibers. The final looks were stunning, showing how creativity and sustainability can go hand in hand.
The show ended with a final speech from the Founder HRM Queen Aderonke Ademiluyi-Ogunwusi, who thanked the designers and the audience for their support of sustainable fashion. She encouraged everyone to continue supporting sustainable fashion and to make conscious choices when it comes to their clothing purchases.
