Camer Couture Mixes Fashion And Philanthropy

Written By: Mazuba Kapambwe—We wish we could fly ourselves to London this Saturday October 16th for Camer Couture's fashion show but for those of you lucky afronista's, this is an event you don't want to miss.

After the success of their first show last year which showcased design labels Kirette Couture, Anggy Haif, Bot I Lam and others, Camer Couture has organized an even bigger event with more designers, more press, and more VIP guests including English Premier league stars like Enoh Eyong, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Sebastien Bassong, Marcus Mokake and George Elokobi. Guests will see collections by Cameroonian labels and Africa Fashion Week NY designers Cote Minou and Kirette Couture as well as Kosibah who is famous for their gorgeous wedding dresses. Other designers slated to walk the Camer Couture runway are Alain Martial Tapoplo, Eki Orleans, Deenola.

Tickets can be purchased online at and some proceeds from the show go to Rhema Grace Childrens orphanage in Cameroon.

UPDATED: KiRette Couture is not participating in this year's Camer Couture show, but will be donating a dress to the charity auction. Also, footballer VIP's Enoh Eyong and Marcus Mokake cannot now make it due to scheduling conflicts.
