BFW: Ethiopian Designers represent at Neonyt Exhibition

Fashion Week in Berlin has filled the streets of the city, and people from all around the globe are swarming to events and exhibitions. Our fourth edition African Designers For Tomorrow participants have come back to display their new collection upon other Ethiopian Designers at Neonyt, the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation.

I picked my favourite pieces and asked each Designer to give a statement to their brand.
