African prints, colourful accessories, bold jewellery; these are just a few of this season’s stylish attires that I seriously recommend to women across the world who love to look elegant. African fashion has grown!! The designs are exquisite, the quality of the fabrics are luxe and the designers are world-class. This edition brings you our style special featuring industry professionals like Khanya Ngumbela (South African model & presenter), Thato Edward (Botswana born model), Jokate Mwegelo (Tanzanian TV personality, actress and entrepreneur), Kukua Odoi (Entrepreneur), Edi Gathegi (Kenyan-American actor) and David Oyelowo (British-Nigerian actor). There is also a selection of style tips on how to wear not only the on-trend African print skirt, but all the 2014 fashion pieces. We also have a fabulous fashion editorial featuring some statement heels for ladies, plus some leather shoes for men and a glorious shoot, by Samantha Clarke, with cover star Mahlet Seifu looking radiant and gorgeous as ever in African pieces from her head wrap to her colourful accessories.


For those of you wanting to be part of an amazing fashion show that will be filled with African designs, fashion and accessories, then be sure to visit the The Labo Ethnik, Fashion & Lifestyle Fashion Week taking place in Paris next month. The show will feature over 80 designers from 4 different continents and as one of the partners to this exclusive fashion event, we will use April and May to expand more about the Fashion Week, the designers who will be featuring at this year’s show and what you can expect this season. We also have travel updates for all our adventurous travellers this month. North and Southern Africa get 5 stars for the best travel experience you will find across Africa. April is a month full of joy; it’s an Easter month. It’s to say the least my birthday month and a month I always cherish because April has always been good to me. I wish everyone out there reading this note a glorious and prosperous month and like always, please do share, comment and interact with our contents.
