Oh Africa!

You guessed right! The theme for this week is Africa. Inspired by all things African and exploring the world of Africa's blooming fashion industry; African inspired pieces from the high street to high end stores. Today's collage features African inspired works from foreign stores and designers.

From Christian Louboutin to L.A.M.B to Blackberry, international brands and labels have drawn inspiration from Africa and its resplendent culture and applied to it Western fashion concepts. This has served as motivation for burgeoning African designers because a platform has been set for their work to receive global recognition in the fashion world.

This collage may not be everyone's idea of alternative fashion. I have mixed up a bunch of things that men would not usually wear or that take a lot of guts for you to rock the outfit. A teeny weeny tad of quirk. The blue shoes for example, enough said. Okay not actually. No offense, they are very reminiscent of our Igbo brothers. :-)
