Howard University’s African Students’ Association hosts “Evolution of African Fashions” tonight in D.C.

Subject: Howard University Event

The African Students’ Association will host its Eighth Annual Fashion Show TONIGHT at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 11, in the Ballroom of the Blackburn Center.
This year’s show, titled “SAKO,”  meaning “To Show Off” in the Yoruba language, will focus on the evolution of African fashions through the span of a lifetime. The show will feature clothing from African designers all over the nation. Proceeds from the show will go towards the African Immigrant Refugee Foundation, a non-profit organization that thrives off of volunteers to help African youth in the DC, Maryland and Virginia area. The A’won Boyz will be performing, and Ghanian actor, John Dumelo, will be present.

This is a very good gathering in the Washington, D.C. area, and proceeds will benefit a very worthy cause.  TOLA.

    Dear Tola,
    Thanks for this information. I could not attend the event because I was very busy all day. I am just opening my inbox- 6 hrs after the SAKO show at Howard U. Please extend an invitation for similar events in the future. Say hi to Adenle Snr.
    Sincerely yours

    Dr. Yisa Ajao
