Africa Fashion Week Lowcountry is On!: Opening Ceremony

Hey Y'all! 

This week I'm teaming up with Unique over at Uniquely His Productions to bring you some insider coverage of this year's Africa Fashion Week Lowcountry festivities! If you don't know, AFWLC is a yearly event in Beaufort, SC that showcases the unity, beauty and power within our culture. 

 

This year's opening ceremony was held at the Hampton House, located at Beaufort's historic Penn Center. If you haven't already, please don't forget to click on this link to read more about this esteemed asset to the culture.

 Africa Fashion Week Lowcountry is the brainchild of the lovely, vibrant creative known as Donellia Chives. She started AFWLC three years ago, and each year it just gets bigger and better! Who knows what we can expect from her and AFWLC next?

 This was JUST the jewelry section. There were so many gorgeous clothing items that my eyes couldn't even take it all in. I'll get pics later this week, but I was too tempted to spend my last dime yesterday!

There was so much good food and energy to be shared inside the Hampton House yesterday evening, and I kept finding myself drifting through the Ngome Lifestyle Pop-Up shop. Don't worry, if you can't make it to the pop-up this week, you'll definitely want to be sure to swing by the website. Donellia truly has some items that can't be found anywhere else! 

 

The pop-up shop is at the Hampton House from now until Friday at 5pm-8pm each day. 

 

Of course, you'll see alternate hours on Friday in preparation for the huge runway showcase taking place that evening. If you haven't purchased your tickets yet, HURRY UP! 

 

I still need to find my outfit for the occasion, so wish me luck! Have you ever experienced Africa Fashion Week Lowcountry?
