Launched at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week last Thursday the new luxury label ASIBELUA was presented to the global fashion community for the ‘Made in Africa' collective show.

The label aims to put African fashion on the map by creating a distinctive African signature while appealing to the international fashion market interpreting elements of African art with couture fabrics and silhouettes.
The designer says "My goal is to build ASIBELUA into a truly luxury African fashion label with genuine international appeal."
