Girls just wanna have fun! And this was a fun one! The 2009 Fall Mercedes Benz Fashion Week that is. A quick recap of the past fashion show as preparations are underway for the 2010 Spring collections!

So we decided to cover the 2009 Fall Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and we were invited to the ThisDay/Arise African Collective showing. But of course was our reply! Totally made sense on, oh so many levels!

Like, this was a first for designers from Africa to show their collections together under one roof at NYC fashion week!  This show, featured four  fashion stars, Xuly.Bet by Lamine Badian Kouyaté of Mali, Tiffany Amber by Folake Folarin-Coker of Nigeria, Stoned Cherrie by Nkhensani Nkosi of South Africa, and Momo by Fati Asibelua of Nigeria.

THISDAY founding Editor-in-Chief and Chairman, Nduka Obaigbena of Nigeria chatted with us about his vision of the showing! “The world is ready for Africa’s designers.” *bliss*

Cannot wait to see what’s in store for the ThisDay/Arise African Collective showing at the Spring 2010 fashion week! The African Fashion Collective will show on Friday, September 11th, 2009 at 7:00pm.
