Black History Month 2009 goes haute couture as Cameroon`s most fabulous fashion designers take over London for the first time ever.  

Courtesy of funky new style hub, Camer Couture, international stars Anggy Haif and Olivia Ervi, will join forces with exciting newcomers KiRette Couture, Bot I Lam, Rose Mbango and Ms Mi to adorn the über chic Shoreditch Studios with a perfect tapestry of eye-popping art, elegance and panache. 

The event will be a kaleidoscopic interpretation of Cameroon`s rich and dynamic culture, " said Camer Couture CEO, Cynthia Anduhtabe.

With diplomats, entrepreneurs and fashion insiders including designer, Yemi Okunsoya on its guest list, the occasion promises to be an exquisite blend of clout, chic and class.

The recent media and catwalk rage about African fashion presents extraordinary prospects for our extremely talented and versatile designers.

We are very excited about giving them the opportunity to access a market which is largely unaware of their talent and stylistic originality, " explained Anduhtable.

The spectacle will also feature live performances from Cameroonian artists: Muntu Valdo, Serge Tebu as well as Dee, Quest & Band. 

In addition, there will be a raffle sale to benefit the Baka Pygmies who make up one of Cameroon`s oldest and most socially deprived societies. 

Assuring a night of verve and innovation, " the show`s art director, Alex Quest said:  

It will be a soirée of chic, couture and stylish edutainment merged with acoustic bliss to uplift everyone to oblivion. "
