Diesel X EDUN London Launch – “We were ‘ere”

After Paris came London and fair enough not on the same level but we had an amazing time and felt a great job was had by all.

The fashion collaboration Diesel and Edun, kicked off its London launch with a stylish Afrocentric party, celebrating African creativity through  music playing, food served and of course the fashion.

Located in the raw setting of the Old Selfridges Hotel, those wo could get in, were treated to Afrobeats, dance perfomances and celebrity party-goers such as Pixie Geldoff. Rubbing shoulders with some of the industries finest, the night was very uber cool, with some of the guests working some of Africa’s finest fashion and styling. (our Paris review to follow)

See  images below from a great night out.
