Dakar Fashion Week 2012 was definitely a global fashion event which kept Africa on the map yet again on the Fashion side. The event was graced by designers from nine countries who took to the catwalk in Senegal for the annual Dakar fashion week, which was also the 10th anniversery of the event. Africa should take this growth of the fashion industry in the best way possible and diverse more to create more awarness to make our Continet a global fashion desitination as it is starting to be.

So here is my take on what went down at the Dakar Fashion Week 2012 as I have gathered photos of the designer and models showcasing the designers collections and them gracing the catwalk.
