Paris black fashion week 2013
Issued on: Modified:
Hot on the heels of Paris fashion week, is black fashion week which opened in Paris Friday. Launched last year by Senegalese designer Adama Paris, who also founded Dakar Fashion Week, the event seeks to turn the spotlight on African designers and models who are struggling to find a place in the world's major fashion events. Despite some progress, Adama told RFI there's still a long way to go.
