A Taste Of Africa

African Fashion African Style African Trends head scarf silk scarf streetstyle

In your day to day life, you may have noticed the resurgence of interest with regards to African clothing and fashion. Whether you're used to the dashiki or a Kente print, African fashion goes much further than this.  From Sierra Leone to Kenya, Ethiopia to Uganda and Ghana, African style incorporates bold prints and colors with a touch of sophistication and an almost royal aesthetic.  

 

 

African fabrics and fashion are no longer seen by western audiences and buyers solely as "traditional" wear. Hand in hand with this has been the increasing use of African textiles and other craft and fashion elements by western designers, such as Louis Vuitton's use of the Kenyan Shuke in its Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

 

 

You don't have to be from this continent to take influence and make the African aesthetic a part of your own.  Whether you incorporate glamorous jewels, headscarves or big and bold tribal prints, now is the time to get inspired!
