The Seoul Africa Fashion Show Team with the support of Yebs fashion, IRokCurls Vallem, Honey hair Boutique, Beauty Africa, Cape Wine Cellar, and Just Me Consulting are proud to present the first African Fashion Show in Korea!
The event will be held during the Seoul Africa Festival, scheduled for Sunday, May 21, 2017, at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) at 3:30 PM.
The Seoul African Fashion show will be an event to celebrate the diversity and share the African culture and fashion. We feel that the fashion show will be the best practice in not only raising awareness but also, changing Korea’s perception of Africa.
We want to show what African beauty really is and what they stand for. The Seoul Africa Fashion show will be sampling from traditional to modern fashion coming from different countries on the African continent. (From west to East) The designs will showcase Ankara, Kente, and Dashiki prints by local designers; Yebs and Vallem Fashion.
The Seoul Africa Fashion Show will also feature one of the finest DJs (From South Africa) DJ Ligrye that has brought his blend of house, R&B, garage, and bass to Seoul’s underground staple venues.
From his debut at Exit in 2013, he has contributed his select sound to VOGUE, Adult Material, Pute Deluxe, Summer Sundays, First Thursday’s, Seoul Shindig, and Resumé.
We are excited to bring together a community of African designers, stylists, industry professionals and fashion enthusiasts to bring a day of glamour and a whole new exposure!
