Like the music, film and comedy industry, the fashion industry has also faced challenges that came with the ban on social gatherings.
However, designers are creatively finding ways to remain relevant and sometime last week, designer Abass Kaijuka showcased his latest collection live on The Kai’s Divo Collection CEO presented his outfits during the annual Runway Trybe Fashion Show on Africa UK Online’s Instagram page.
Other designers that showcased included Quophi Akotuah (Ghana), Nuvi Creative (Cameroon) Ibrahim Fernandez (Cote D’ivoire) plus Becz Clothing, NikBee Stitches, Owunmichic, Beth Raiwe, USay and House of Temmy all from Nigeria. “This collection is called Hope.
It is a celebration of the resilience of every individual who has fought to end this pandemic,” Kaijuka said. According to the designer, the virtual presentation was intended to transport the viewer back to when it was normal to walk on the red carpet in a frothy gown with adoring paparazzi flashing away.
