Zed Eye showcase brings fashion excitement at the Afro Hair and Beauty Show.

The last weekend of May saw the Zed Eye presents ... fashion show and Pop-Up Boutique return to the Afro hair and Beauty show with an array of African and African inspired designers showcasing their latest collections on the Catwalk and in the Pop up Boutique.
The show saw the likes of press, buyers and the general public in attendance on both days. It was also a celebration of 30 years of the Afro Hair & Beauty Live shows.

 The show kicked off on Sunday the 29th  May with a fashion show at 12:45 which featured collections from upcoming designers who included Adopted Culture, Monsura Bags, Lanyero, Yaa Ataa bags and Yummi Kouture. The next show on the Sunday was the 2:45 show which featured more established designers like Afro-Chique, Ayi Kai couture, Tina Lobondi. Celebrity stylist and designer Zed Eye opened the show with her gorgeous floaty pieces.

The Pop Up boutique was open on both days selling items from the designers who showcased on the Catwalk as well as others like Dre Designs, Dionne Goodings shoes, Bubushiiky, Ohema Ohene and Bianou whose jewellery sold like hot cakes.

The show was a huge success with many already looking forward to next year’s show.
The show would not have been possible without our amazing sponsors being Sensational Hair, The Award Winning Josh Hair & Beauty Team and Stacey Okafor from Mac. 

Here is the Show in Pictures.
