It was such an amazing experience working on the season 2 set of An African City with my team. Styling the five main female characters, with five very different personalities, style, and experiences this season on the show, brought of challenges, great fun and fulfillment. With every episode, my hope is to bring to you, some fashion and behind the scenes highlights using the unedited, raw images captured during filming. This is to celebrate, the designers, artists, set designers and my team who really helped make the fashion for season 2 happen. So here we go… Episode 1; ANOTHER RETURN
