Dance Umbrella 2009: African Crossroads

A new generation of creators has emerged in Africa's urban centres and African Crossroads, a first for London and the UK, is your opportunity to see a range of vibrant choreography from across this enormously diverse continent.


THE AFRICAN FASHION FAIR 2009 aims to make African designers and their garments accessible...a majority of the African designers have bespoke labels which survive mainly through word of mouth. Many up coming designers need the help of their predecessors and the fashion fans at large.

THE AFRICAN FASHION FAIR brings together fashion houses, freelance designers and Fashion design institutions to give the fashion industry a jump start because the services necessary to support a thriving industry like mass production, fashion marketing & PR, fashion photography are beyond the reach of many designers; if they don't have major financial backing.
