Glitz Africa Fashion Week
In 2016, Latasha Ngwube’s ‘About That Curvy Life (ATCL)’ made history at Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week, as the #ATCL Collective presented plus-size models that stormed the runway rocking clothes from five designers showcasing plus-size collections in a defiant celebration of all things curvy. And now, ATCL is about to make history again at Glitz Africa Fashion Week 2017, which is taking place in Accra, Ghana from October 5th – October 8th. The ATCL Collective will be presenting three Nigerian brands – one menswear and two womenswear. This will be the first ever inclusion of plus-size fashion apparel in the history of Glitz Africa Fashion Week.
The ATCL Collective is showing on Saturday the 7th of October at Glitz Africa Fashion Week’s runway in Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra, Ghana. They are pleased to announce the first ever ATCL Collective ambassadors, Anita Matey (Ghanaian NY-based plus size fashion blogger, women’s advocate, and creator of Foreign Curves blog) and AJ Sarpong (Ghanaian Media personality). They chose these two individuals because they share similar goals with them – using their platforms to spread messages of body positivity through creative forms of expression.
