Hosting ‘Africa Now’ with Bonhams

On October 4th 2016, my sister, DJ CUPPY, and I hosted an event with the auction house Bonhams. The event was in conjunction with their new auction of contemporary African Art and sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank and the Dangote Foundation.

Entitled Africa Now the event was a celebration of art, music and fashion. The latter is where I come in. For the event I curated and styled a fashion presentation of the best of African Fashion. The models were styled in designers: Lisa Folawiyo, Sophie Zinga and MAXHOSA BY LADUMA and wore accessories by Adele Dejak. It was an honour to be a part of an event that truly celebrated all the creativity coming from Africa. My highlight of the night? DJ Cuppy’s incredible performance.
