African Street Style Festival 2016

 

The beautiful thing about a London summer is all the colour and life that comes to the streets through its people, pretty much like a regular Caribbean day I would like to say. However, I had an extra special experience when I attended the African Street Style Festival, in Shoreditch East London on July 24th 2016. The African Street Style Festival was created as a project emerging in London to provide an open, street-based platform to celebrate the influence of African creativity. Surely I can say this objective is being accomplished as I saw a myriad of people proudly dressed in beautiful African inspired garb and traditional African wear excitedly out to participate in this great festival. In a nutshell, there were many booths selling handmade accessories, clothes, jewellry all from London and parts of Africa. To make it even better there was music, dance, food, fashion and joy felt as a mixture of races came together to celebrate African culture.

In this blog post I’m sharing some of what I saw with pictures below. Had Inot been so lost in the exciting experience I definitely would have had more pictures to share with you all. However, I encourage everyone to find out more about the African Street Style festival via their website http://www.africanstreetstylefestival.co.uk/ and their social media platforms:  Twitter: https://twitter.com/streetwithstyle   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/africanstreetstylefestival/?fref=ts
