This year’s line-up of designers include Suzaan Heyns and Ruald Rheeder from South Africa; DEV r NIL from India; Hakeem Balogun (Kimono collection), Yvonne Mwosu (Vonne couture) and Tina Ndidi Ugo (Didi creations) from Nigeria; Dave, Kushweet Bharij, Yvonne Odhiambo and Gloria Baraza from Kenya; Estella Ogbonna from USA; Shahida Zia from Pakistan; Chauvin-Buthaud Laurence and Christina Schatzeden from Ivory coast/France; as well as Kapasa Musonda from Zambia.
