The CamerCouture Fashion Showcase organised by Votre Avant Garde (VAG) is fast approaching and this year they are the celebrating Africa's opulence by theming the show "African Decadent" to portray Africa’s unsurpassed beauty, its cultural richness and the way these aspects shine through fashion and art.

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!”

Check out some of his pieces below!
