Hundreds of people from around the world gathered at Alexandra Palace, north London, on Saturday for the first ever UK edition of the Afropunk festival, with the iconic supermodel and singer-songwriter Grace Jones as a headliner.
Afropunk, which launched in the US 13 years ago, is renowned for afrocentric style and fashion. The festival describes itself as being about “education, political awareness, and self-empowerment”.
Here are some of the most iconic looks from the festival's London debut.
