AN event celebrating the rich heritage of African fashion is returning to Finsbury Park.

The London Fashion Centre in Fonthill Road will feature clothes and beauty products from emerging and established African entrepreneurs.

The Fashion4Africa day will also include workshops on ethical fashion, sustainability and body confidence.

Founder Anna Njie said: “It’s important that we as older people support the younger people in being able to embrace our roots and our values. These events provide a platform for showcasing the amazing potential within the modern African textiles industries, African fashion, culture music and arts from the African continent.”

Ms Njie hopes that the event will encourage others to become entrepreneurs. Now in its third year, Fashion4Africa is on Saturday September 28, from11am-8pm.
