To kick things off, AFWT held their opening soiree at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Toronto. This was a fun welcome event which also provided attendees with a sneak peek of what to expect during the runway shows as well as a chance to network with those within the African fashion and entertainment industry...

The event also included a musical performance from the Ascension Groove Band. I love live music bands, so had definitely enjoyed grooving to the music
