Afrotropolis

My name is Chinedu and I am a SUPAFRIK. I am also a designer and my 8 year old label is called Chinedesign. A few weeks ago on a quiet sunday morning, I launched a collection for summer called Afrotropolis . I hadn’t shown a collection in two years (I took a break to go to school and learn more about the business) so I felt a bit of pressure going into the showing. Between the challenges of the live mannequin concept and the snowstorm in the middle of spring, so much could have gone wrong and yet for the most part everything went right. I am happy that the collection and my choice of presentation was well received. I got a mention in the National Post and Afrotropolis is making its way through the blogsphere like here and here. There’s more to come but I’m keeping it mum for now. In a future post, I will break down the African inspiration behind the collection. In the meantime you can check out the lookbook photographs by the amazing Naz Tana as well as the video above that I sliced together from amateur footage of the event (excuse the occasional shakiness and the guillotine effect).
