hey there folks! here are some looks from the african fashion collective we knew we'd spotted before...

agbani darego (miss world 2001) in jewel by lisa, as seen at the Africa Rising fashion show in London last year

agbani (how gorgeous is she?!) wore her stunning embellished ankara dress with pantyhose and pumps (not pictured) and alek wek showed off her legs for days on the runway. jealousy? us? NEVER :-)

tiffany amber designer folake folarin-coker in tiffany amber, fall 2009 as seen on the runway at the Africa Fashion Collective

folake folarin-coker wore the black version of one of her runway pieces. we're going with the runway look on this one. it's far more interesting and the contrast belting is stunning.
