A thought provoking piece about what it means to be African designed and how we as Africans are seeking to redefine ourselves.
I particularly agree with the assertion that, ‘the African context is neither isolated nor static’. Too often we think of Africa as a completely different world that is unaffected by modernity.
I feel that the same arguments can be made about African fashion. Its not just about bold, colourful prints or huge headpieces.
