We are so excited that African fashion takes centre stage on the global fashion scene once again when ARISE Magazine presents the ARISE Magazine “Made in Africa” fashion collective show during the September 2011 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Designers who will be showing at the event include Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi, Jewel by Lisa, Asibelua, Bunmi Koko, Tsemaye Binitie, Pierre- Antoine Vettorello and Klûk CGDT.
