Ean Williams of Corjor International takes a bow

Ok, I promised to bring you video of the DC Fashion Week event finale. Belatedly though I do, here is the quick preview! One of the things I really appreciate about DC Fashion Week is the effort made by Executive Director Ean Williams to include and promote regional designers in this international event. At the International Couture Collections show at the French Embassy, local designers, like Heydari, were front and center along with designers from the Ukraine, Colombia, Yemen (Top Rank – DC based), Guyana (DonJ’ Moda), and the Ivory Coast. Afrofusion TV got a chance to speak with the young 17 year-old Ivorian designer (whom I wrote about in the earlier post) and a couple of others. The consensus was that African fashion’s acceptance into the mainstream is on a steady rise. Keep your eye out for these fantastic fashion designers! Bless…
