Celebrating diversity in fashion for Black History Month

Looking back at #BlackHistoryMonth last month, we’re celebrating the amazing month we’ve had as a team and want to tell you all about what we’ve been getting up to.

Taste of Africa 2018

We loved exhibiting at the #TasteOfAfrica event in Middlesbrough and want to thank everyone who came to see us at our stall! Events like these are so important to us in promoting diversity and displaying the rich heritage and culture of Africa – something which we show in our unique designs and pieces.

This was a great chance to truly give people that taste of what we are about here and the fact that it coincided with Black History Month was perfect. We had an amazing number of people come to see us and got some amazing feedback on our new range.

Black Youth Awards 2018

It was also an honour to attend the #BlackYouthAwards which followed the fabulous Taste of Africa event and celebrated black youth. This is about what young people are trying to achieve locally, nationally and internationally. Junior Masandi rocked our #DashikiRoyalty shirt at the awards and we were so proud to see him on stage – he is also well known in our community for his music management and fundraising efforts so it was fantastic to have him model our clothes.

Our Dashiki look is extremely popular because it can be accessorised in so many different ways, so when people want to match elements of their partner’s outfit at occasions such as weddings we have just the thing!

 Our sale and exciting Christmas news

We currently have a fantastic sale online at www.cotilda.com and would like to invite anyone who wants to get a feel for what we do to check it out now. Those wanting to see, feel and try on any of our garments should get in touch with us.

Our exciting news continues as we’ll be hosting a pop up shop on Saturday 8th December in the China Exchange, London to show our #ChristmasSale. At the #PopUpUnited event, there will be food and drink as well as fantastic entertainment on the day so make sure you don’t miss out and get your Christmas shopping done early.

We still have so many exciting things planned for next year so watch this space!
