THE AFRICAN MARKET @ OLD SPITALFIELDS
On the 4th Saturday of every month Open the Gate Org. now hosts The African market at Old Spitalfields Market in East London. The market is a showcase of African influenced and inspired designs. Some of which have been made in the motherland.
While I have been exploring Afrofusion jewellery I’ve been on the look out for a label which ignites my ring fetish and finally I’ve found one. Cue Triballery.
Triballery also carry a range of necklaces , cuffs and as you’ll see below, inventive creations such as a pair of earrings which elongate into a necklace.
If you are after vibrant earrings with an African flair then you’ll find them at Ayikai Couture. Carrying a range of fabric and beaded earrings from small and demure to large and loud.
Made in Gambia these wooden bangles are exactly what you need to create an statement army party. I couldn’t resist purchasing one of the overside carved bangles; as I love the tribal feel they have. Pictures soon of how I’ll be styling up them up.
For news of where the Empress Lounge will be next check out their Facebook Page.
Queen Caz and her unique African Bouquet earrings have been causing a storm since I featured them in my first WP photo challenge this week. Time for you all to see more of the bouquets and the rest of Caz’s range. Caz’s also get my vote my crown jewels of the market.
I just wanted to give a shout out to Open the Gate’s accessories label which carries items such as shoe laces, snoods and Bum-bags. All of which have been injected with African flavour and flair. I can’t tell you how much I’m loving the new lease of life these laces have given my wedge trainers.
