African Fashion Week 2010

African Fashion was taken to a new level in July this year when Adiree Fashion Agency presented the first African Fashion Week New York. The show brought together an ensemble of talented African designers.

Adiree Fashion Agency was founded in February 2009 in Westchester, NY by Adiat Disu. According to Adiree Fashion Agency, events such as the African Fashion Week is a great vehicle for displaying the many talents of individuals in today’s fashion industry.

The show ran for three days with two days dedicated to displaying African Fashion on the runway and the final day set aside for a trunk show and a classy Soiree where Toba Gold performed and interacted with the crowd
