Here is a little grand something I did today...
LONDONAIROBI is set to become the online destination for unique accessories by independent African designers. Put together by London designer Hannah and Nairobi stylist Wambui, they both scour the continent looking for designers creating unique and original pieces using materials from Africa's rich natural resources.
The online shop which is already running will allow you the shopper to explore the creativity of the continent, read the stories of the designers and to own a little piece from the continent.
The media launch I attended today in London was organised and managed by the brand's PR agency African Creative Collective, a newly launched agency led by award winning fashion dahling and former River Island PR manager - Arieta Mujay.
The launch featured an array of accessory items - neckpieces, rings, bangles, scarves and purses carefully arranged and creatively tucked around at the Loft Lounge of the Hospital Club on Covent Garden as guests sipped on drinks and munched on light canapés as well as got their nails done by the manicurists. Those present included designer reps, Terence Sambo of One Nigeria Boy, 2/3 of the CEO Dancers - Ezinne and Nqobile, Ms Arieta herself...some images below
