Africa Fashion Day Berlin sponsored by Breeze Berlin Berlin announces Brian Rennie, the so-called “designer with the Hollywood gene” as patron for this season. Nigerian Designer Samson SOBOYE will present his colourful and sophisticated collection during our Runway Show on 8th of July at 9.30 pm at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in the Erika-Heß-Eisstadion (EHE) in BerlinWedding. Furthermore Nana K. Brenu’s label 1981 will show that a modern design ethos and a rich and vibrant Ghanaian heritage can coexist harmoniously.
Finally you will have the chance to look at the modern South African knitwear from MaXhosa by Laduma . His vision is to create a modern Xhosa-inspired knitwear collection that would be suitable for amakrwala , the traditional Xhosa initiation. Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Chief Mandla Mandela, was fascinated by Laduma’s design and bought a complete collection. Top model Marie Amière has been head hunted as casting director for this show. Let yourself be carried away by an extraordinary show with exceptional fashion.
