African designers emerging out of Africa

I came across a post on Fashionista that really caught my attention.  The post was shinning a little light on emerging designers coming straight out of Africa.  Well of course it caught my attention…it’s a part of my culture!  I am excited about  the fashion industry is continuing to grow on a larger platform when it comes to culture, or at least to what the masses see. 

African inspired pieces has been a popping trend for a while now, so it only makes sense to recognize the talented designers of the region.
Arise Magazine Fashion Week was held in Lagos, Nigeria, showing 77 collections over a period of five days.  Out of all of those collections, Fashionista picked their top ten.I likey!
Check out the emerging designers below, straight out of Africa!
