The show this year will continue to unveil established as well as emerging African creators to an international audience who are otherwise oblivious of their stylistic originality.
As Africa's fashion scene fast develops and is fiercely exploited by celebrities such as Solange Knowles, Kelis, Alicia Keys, Beyonce Knowles, Mel B etc so does shows such as CamerCouture who are out to breach that gap between emerging talents and the public who hunger to know more of this fashion scene.
In the coming few days, I will showcase some of the works of the designers taking part in the upcoming show to give you all a taster of what is to come on that day. If you were at the 2009 show, be warned that you will arrive to a transformed venue! Expect lush, sexy tones of red, black and gold. From the moment you arrive, through to the catwalk show and performances, it is organised to be a one hundred percent classy experience!
There will be celebrities, fashion buyers, politicians and entrepreneurs among their diverse crowd of guests. Apart from a fabulous evening out, the show also presents an excellent networking opportunity so make sure to get yourself down there!
The designer we are going to focus today is: Alain Martial Tapolo the designer behind the Martial Tapolo brand who already draws comparisons to Givenchy. His work with unconventional fabrics such as the raffia and his flair for detailed chic that brings out the princess in every woman shot him to fame in the early 00s. From the catwalks of Paris to Douala, Cameroon, where he has a showroom, he inspires one word: “wow!”

We hope our hot boys continue in this winning streak to wipe out the embarrassment they caused at the past World Cup held in South Africa where they had their worst ever tournament being the first team to be eliminated.
We also hope new coaches Javier Clemente, Omam Biyik and Jacques Songo'o will lead our team to greater heights restoring our pride in our football team.
With a team like ours, DC is thinking more girls will be screaming and it won't just be because of the football talent ;-)
