This Day/Arise Magazine to Put on a Show at the 2009 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week



BN International Scene Editor

Nduka Obaigbena has done it again!  ThisDay Media Group’s new Arise Magazine will be hosting the African Fashion Collective as part of the lineup for New York Fashion Week. Designers to be featured have not been officially announced yet.

This Day is known for making history in fashion and entertainment. First it was the concerts, then Arise Magazine and I am sure that the African Fashion Collective will be nothing short of AMAZING. Finally, African fashion designers will be getting the recognition they deserve on the world stage. BN will be definitely be reporting every step of the way. In the meantime, let us know which African designers you think should show at New York Fashion Week?

    new fresh real sellable talent and Deola of course. samata muse clothing is crap very badly made abeg! Fashion week in New York is not entertainment its business so I’d like to see Dakova. Deola maybe a south african/ Kenyan designer.. mix it up a bit.

    I think Korto Momulu should show her designs .She was on Project Runway and received many positive comments for her creative designs,she has a wide fan base (including me) as is well-known .
