Hot Shots From Africa Fashion Week In Los Angeles 2012, Day 1

The maiden edition of the AFWLA was just a few weeks ago. The venue of the fashion showcase was the Papillion Institute of Art, S. Main Street, Los Angeles. Just like we made mention in our first report, we had crazy fun running around Los Angeles.

 Prior to the show starting, we couldn't sit in one place, so we made sure to go everywhere, we were at the Nokia Theatre, the Staples Center which is the home center for the LA Lakers, we went around the fashion district, we even visited the famous Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising just for the fun of it, we were at some of the major bars and restaurants where the stars go to relax, Wolfang Puck Bar & Grill, LA Live, Rock n Fish etc, we were saw the 2 sides of LA, the glamour parts & the dirty, seedy side. It was mad fun all the way.

The show proper was in the evening, so we had enough time to faff around.  We later got to the venue sometime later in the evening to meet the show in full swing. But we were able to take some pictures (30+) on the 'red carpet' for our readers viewing pleasure.
