So the FIMA took place last November, the "fashion baby" of Alphadi the notorious designer from Niger.I've heard, read great things about this festival over the years, it's a great magical meeting for all our fabulous African designers kinda like an African Fashion week without any discrimination btw East, West, South , North and they sometimes invite foreign designers w/a great interest in Africa to the festival.
I heard that this year's event went awesome, w/Alphadi, Haif, Ayissi, Colle Ardo,the lovely Gavin Rajah** ..and many many more.
The other cool thing this year is that they added a Hip Hop Festival; the FIMA is conscious of the influence of that form of art on the youth..and wanted to give them a musical platform..cool rite.
Anywhoo here's the official webbie:
