Korto Momolu, the Liberian-born designer came onto the fashion scene as a breakout start of Project Runway’s Season 5 and ever since then, she kept surprising the fashion industry with better works. Now the designer is gearing up to showcase her latest and greatest designs at Africa Fashion Week NY. Drawing from her African roots, Korto infuses tribal details into her classic designs. Inspired by rich fabrics and textures, Momolu’s designs are intended for real, full-figured women.
“You can see her multiple influences at work in her garments. The prints and silhouettes are evocative of West Africa; and there is usually a juxtaposition of some glamorous element, [such as] sequins against a more natural fabric or cut.” –Brew Hammond, author and blogger, said of Momolu’s design approach.
AFWNY includes runway shows hosting 21+ designers from various countries in Africa and those of the African Diaspora, exhibitions, and industry networking events. Opening designers Francis Hendy, Korto Momolu, and designers like Mafi, Attolle Collection, Geraldo Fashions and others will showcase.
