EVENT: AFRICA FASHION WEEK | AFWNY 2011

I heard about AFWNY last year, I'm not certain when it began, but at the same time, I'm not necessarily filled with enough enthusiasm to consult with Google. Eh. Forgive my laziness. Like I've previously stated, I have been preoccupied with summer classes and what not, but all that is over. I'm currently at my parent's place upstate recovering from oral surgery along with other ailments; I had two wisdom teeth extracted last Monday. I've been here since Wednesday, but that's besides the point. I was especially excited about this year's AFWNY for many reasons. One of them being my little cousin and big sister playing key roles in it; my little cousin modelled, while my big sister was one of the stylists backstage. Being put on my cousin's guestlist for 2 out of the 3 days was beyond um...awesome. Can I just add that AFWNY conveniently fell into the last week of school? Amazing, I know. Anyways, back to the show; I only attended one day out of the three. I can only tolerate being in the company of fashion-loving-individuals for so long. I love fashion. I don't love fashion-lovers. Well, most of them. The shows took place Thursday-Saturday, my older brother and I arrived early on Friday 'cause we apparently had the time mixed up. I came mostly for the visual stimulation, hence, I did not pay much attention to the names of the designers. I enjoyed the collections for the most part. The models were beyond beautiful. Have you ever seen a beauty so immense, it sent shivers down your spine? Yeah, it was that brand of experience. I took A LOT of pictures. I sincerely wish I could find it in me to stain these photographs with a watermark of some sort, but unfortunately, I cannot. Feel free to share these photos as you please, just do not forget to source/credit it correctly. Otherwise.....yeah.
