Toriola's works to feature at Sol Afrik Fashion Week Mixer

Toriola, a custom clothier specializing in fusion couture fashion, will be one of three featured designers at this year’s Sol Afrik Fashion Week Mixer. This exciting event will be held on Thursday, August 16 from 6-11pm at Brooklyn Terrace in Brooklyn, NY.

The Sol Afrik Mixer will present the best works from Toriola and two additional designers, and guests will be able to vote on the most inspiring of the three. The winner will have the opportunity to have their designs featured on the Sol Afrik website for two weeks before the launch of the show.

Toriola will display pieces from the newest women’s line, Diamond in the Rough, which features delicate lace designs, along with pieces from the unique men’s line, Modern Nomad. “I am honored to be one of the three designers considered for this mini showcase. I hope my work is considered good enough to take first place in the midst of all the great talent that will be showcasing,” says Tori Famuyiwa, fashion designer and owner of Toriola.

Sol Afrik Fashion Week is a lavish, multi-day fashion event. It is the first fashion week that features edgy, couture, contemporary, and ready-to-wear, international designers from across the African Diaspora and the World.

Representing designers from all over the world – including African Americans, Continental Africans, Blacks in the Caribbean, Africans in Europe, Latin Americans, and Asians – Sol Afrik’s global approach of creating a platform for fashion designers from around the globe, in order for them to gain universal exposure is highly unprecedented.

Tori Famuyiwa possesses an undeniable passion for fashion, art and design. This trait is derived from his natural sense of beauty and the ability to apply his art form to any canvas.
