Ozwald Boateng was the highlight of the African Icons show. Some attendees admitted just to be here to see him. One of the models showcasing Boateng’s collection was Blogger and Fashionisto Joshua Kissi from Street Etiquette (2nd picture from top). The designs surprised with the integration of African Prints. Some items were bold, with blazers and pants completely made out of African fabrics. Some more subtle, and the prints were just grazing the collar or pocket rim of a suit jacket. The audience loved it and the presentation ended with a standing ovation.
Every man should have some Boateng in their closet! Wouldn’t you agree?
