The Africa Rising Celebration in Washington DC on August 1, 2008 at the Kennedy Center was AWESOME.  Started in 2006 by Nduka Obaigbena and “This Day”, a Nigerian newspaper, Africa Rising is a celebration of Africa featuring fashion and music.  Jay Z and John Legend surprised the crowd with full concerts!  I was also pleasantly surprised to see a fashion show featuring the MOMO couture line by Nigerian fashion designer Fati Asibelua.  Her pieces were effortlessly modern with a soulful edge…I couldn’t get enough!  I need a MOMO dress!!
