Ladies and gents, it would appear that African inspired fashion has
officially arrived and so in style. WE LOVE IT! It's about time too.
I´m aware of that African fashion and influences have been around for quite some time, but the
current rebirth of the “African movement” is all about to find that perfect balance between new and old.
Talented designers and image-makers are riding the broader wave of interest in Africa’s rebirth and
attracting an international clientele by balancing contemporary fashion’s pursuit of the new with an
appreciation of the ideals of beauty and beautification that are deeply rooted in
Africa’s cultural and social awareness.”
Solange Knowles, who's individual style I dig, has been rocking quite a few funky African print outfits.
She wears them in cute little dresses, jackets and jumpsuits made from West African print cotton and wax
fabrics. The bubble dress she's wearing in the picture above is a fabulous mix of two prints by an
Africanfashion label that I absolutely LOVE They mixes African prints in the funkiest ways.
ps: I need to get this afro-chic look down for summer. No I mean, ASAP!
Colorful day to you ; )
