Athalia Samuel showed off her designing skills at the fourth edition of Qurux Afrika, featuring an evening of African Fashion at the Central Bank Auditorium. The event was presented by the Emancipation Support Committee as part of their emancipation celebrations.
Her swimwear line entitled Afrodesiack was originally launched in the Grand Cayman at the 2014 at the Cayman Islands Fashion Week. In an interview, she said “The actual aphrodisiac—stimulates sexualities, and Aphrodite—the ‘goddess of beauty’ is all added into my one line. When designing, I see myself wearing each piece as a model, as someone who loves the tropics because I am from the Caribbean”.
