Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013: Mustafa Hassanali presents “Afroture”

Published

 on

Mustafa HassanaliCelebrating his 10th Showcase at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013, Day 3 of the fabulous event took everyone through one theme to another at the Tshwane City Hall, South Africa. Tanzanian designer Mustafa Hassanali unveiled his Afroture collection to a very excited audience.

The collection had two major prints and fabrics that the designer transformed into beautiful dresses with the models adorned with cultural accessories.

The title of the collection; “Afro” a short name for African and “Afroture” a short word for French word ‘Couture’ and English word ‘Future’, all about celebrating the bright future of African fashion. His collection depicts the usage of East African cotton fabric “Kitenge” turning them into signature Mustafa Hassanali evening gowns. This collection embodies the spirit, elegance and glamour of the true statuesque beauty of Africa which has, will and always be in vogue.

My Verdict
The collection was loved by a lot of people. He carefully selected each model and mae sure they were able to tell the Afroture story each dress represented. Even though I am not familiar with his designs, it was a good first encounter. Check out the collections and let us know what you think.
