Ugandan fashion designer and Kampala Fashion Week founder, Gloria Wavamunno. 

The African fashion industry is booming, we have seen African fashion showcased on global platforms but who are some of the brains behind this growing sector?
Genevieve Magazine in Nigeria compiled a list of  10 African designers to watch in 2015 .

Genevieve Magazine asked Trevor Stuurman (ELLE South Africa first style reporter), Arieta Mujay ( Top Stylist and Creative Director of African Creative Collection), Franklin Saiyalel (Kenya’s leading male Fashion Blogger), and Tsholo Dikobe (Fashion artist from Botswana) to predict which African designer we should look out for this year.

Some of the designers on the list have featured on WaAfrika Online before.  You might be wondering if your favourite is mentioned, well the list is as follows:

Rich Mnisi - South Africa

Chu Suwannapha - South Africa

Kenneth Nze - Nigeria

Gloria Wavamunno - Uganda

Adebayo Oke-Lawal - Nigeria

Sophie Nzinga - Senegal

Katungulu Mwendwa - Kenya

Nana Brenu - Ghana
