Elegante by Tiannahstyling is getting ready to showcase its latest collection at the third edition of Africa Fashion Week London scheduled for 1-3 August at The Old Truman Brewery.

Entrepreneur and creative Director of Tiannahstyling Toyin Lawani is no stranger to AFWL, having been one of the official stylists for the event in 2012, styling for a number of designers including, to name just a few, the House of Jola runway which showcased gorgeous prints, the grand finale by Adebayo Jones with his signature metallic sequined gowns and of course the last ever runway of late Remi Osholake of Remi Lagos which featured a range of iconic and edgy black and white looks.

 Lawani feels ready to showcase her own designs on the AFWL runway this year. Of her new collection, Lawani said, “Freedom collection is very dramatic and unpredictably creative. To be free is expensive and to express oneself is freedom. Experience care-free fashion like never before. Welcome to the freedom era!"
In line with the Elegante design aesthetics, the Freedom collection will offer edgy looks from materials such as silk, lycra, polka dots, leather, feathers, and chiffon. The collection is heavily accessorised with bags and hats.
For those who wish to purchase straight off the runway looks from the 'Freedom' collection, Toyin Lawani has a mouthwatering 20% discount on all purchases made on the show day.
