In just under 2 weeks time, the second annual CamerCouture Fashion Showcase a funky style hub organised by Votre Avant Garde (VAG) a marketing and PR company producing bespoke events for corporate and private clients, will take place.

This show is a platform for emerging as well as established African designers to connect with international fashion marketers, buyers and enthusiasts. The shows are out of the box spectacles that portray the richness, glamour and class of African vogue and culture.

Set in London's triendiest spots, the annual CamerCouture shows are glitzy and media packed with representatives from the BBC to Sky News!

For this years' show, they have gone international to include participating designers from all over Africa rather than just Cameroon and their theme is "African Decadence" to portray the opulence and grandeur that Africa is.

October 16th is the date, Shoreditch Studios is the venue, London is the city and the time is 6pm.

At this year's show, Comoros-born Deena Dee and Cameroonian, Olafemi Bela’s Deenola label will unveil a stunning fusion of African roots, tropical chic and contemporary silhouettes to grab the headlines. 

Not even up to a year since they launched their label, they have managed to have a celebrity following with pop star Shingai Shoniwa of the The Noisettes smitten by their debut collection, Versatile - a London and Paris-influenced mix of wax prints, linen and lace cuts that effortlessly balance style and comfort.   

Deenola creations have also graced the pages of Pride magazine one of the biggest selling magazines for the black woman.
