A fashion show depicting African wear will be held on Friday, May 19th, 2017 as part of the activities to commemorate Africa Liberation Week.
The show will be held at the Harlem Plaza in Newtown, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., during which at least twelve young women and men will be given the opportunity to model their African wear, along with the All Saints University African Student Council.
It will also coincide with Africa Dress Day on Friday 19 May when the general public is invited to wear African attire.
“The whole purpose of the show is to encourage young people outside there to be more conscious of their race and where exactly they came from,” Member of the House of the Nyabinghi Order, Arabella Peters stated.
Peters noted that the participants will be chosen based on their African wear and given a chance to model at the show.
“I want to encourage the young people to take part in the fashion and in the African vibes, and we invite as many as possible to come to the show to model their own personal wear,” Peters added.
