In April of 2011, Afrotropolis made its debut in Toronto. The creative idea of Toronto fashion designer Chinedu Ukabam of Chinedesign, it featured “live mannequins” displaying the collection in a gallery setting. Afrotropolis was well received by the fashion/arts community, the media and the blogsphere. For all those that have been requesting a sequel, we have some great news! We are pleased to announce that the second installment to this series is currently in the works! Afrotropolis Wanderland will debut in February 2012, sponsored by TD as a part of their Then and Now festival in celebration of Black History Month (CBC Radio and Television are the media partners). Unlike the first, which was composed entirely of Chinedu’s designs, the second installment will be a collaborative effort with other creative minds from the worlds of visual arts, fashion and film to create a universe that commemorates different periods in Black history and celebrates the achievements and cultural beacons of people of African origin.
