The garden of a luxury hotel opposite the sea provides the idyllic setting for the seventh edition of Fimo228, the International Festival of African Fashion in Lomé, Togo. Its founder, designer and model agency boss Jacques Logoh has selected 32 stylists to promote the very best of contemporary African fashion. A celebration of cultural cross-pollination, the event shows the African continent at its sartorial best. FRANCE 24 went to check it out.
