In only its fifth year, an infant compared to other fashion weeks around the world, Mercedez-Benz Africa Fashion Week 2012 wraps up after showcasing more than 30 designers around the vast continent. Nigeria, Ghana, the Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Mozambique were among the countries represented during the four day show. Hosted by African Fashion International, notable designers at the show included Dax Martin, Tina Lobondi, UNICEF Ambassador Gavin Rajah and French designer Fred Sathal. Designers didn't hide from color or exorbitance: Dennis Lloyd featured lavish feather and lace hats, and Tina Lobondi showcased beautiful patterns in her designs.
