Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013: Kibonen



KibonenIt’s day 2 of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013, and we are looking at an amazing line up of designers.

After arriving at the Tshwane City Hall at 6PM for the very exciting line up, the show began with an amazing burst of colour from Cameroonian fashion designer Kibonen Nfi of Kibonen NY. Bringing his ethnic flare into the modernized side of his fashion, he created a line up of beautiful satin dresses, blazers & trousers in beautiful and colourful prints embodied in her Toghu designs.

My Verdict
There were some pieces that I did love; like the first image below with the purple satin dress and print sleeve. It flowed really well on thew model and is very wearable. I also just loved the mixed print blazer on the second male model. The cut, fit, and fabric made it look amazing, plus they picked the perfect model to showcase it.

Check it out below, let us know what you think and see if you can spot some of our Nigerian Isis models on the runway. If you missed out on the first set of shows from Day 1, you have missed out on a lot. But not to worry, we have got it all here: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013:Gavin Rajah
