Arise: African Promise Collective Spring 2010

A hearty congratulations to the spirited and textile-adventurous designers of the Arise: African Promise Collective Spring 2010 runway show. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is finally acknowledging that the arts and aesthetics of Africa are an integral part of the global fashion scene. To learn more about ethical sourcing in Africa and Asia, visit the Ethical Fashion Forum's Spotlight on Sourcing page. Also, do not miss my June 2009 write-up on Loza Maléombho's Côte d'Ivoire Chic, definitely one to watch for fashion weeks to come.
