Oh yes it indeed lived up to its name depicting so much lifestyle and food displays. The most amazing part was that of the fashion, boy oh boy! There is something endearing in the way Africans adorn themselves. The beauty of Africa has gone beyond just their landscape and we have seen an emerging impeccable fashion sense from the shores of Africa. The renowned African fabric/Ankara in other quotas is making incredible waves and leaves an indelible mark wherever it is found. We have seen the embrace of this fabric even going beyond Africa with international celebrities like Beyonce embracing and celebrating this iconic cloth.
With the Luju theme dubbed “A return to African Future,” it was no surprise to witness a whole lot of African tailored outfits representing this much adored African treasure. Yes people came out to Eat, Sway and Love in their immaculate designs of African fashion. This is one event to look out for in the African fashion space as it promises to support, grow and create a culture of embracing our African origin which can potentially create a platform for growth of the African fashion industry. The united Africa that we so much yearn for can be birthed from such events that allows for Africans to not discriminate against one another but to share a common goal of looking sassy and dapper in that unifying Ankara fabric. Let us return to the future of who we are as Africans and bring out the Ubuntu (humanity) that is our birth right.
