Fashion week has taken over the collective fashion conversation. it is everywhere, the designers,fashion list A'S, bloggers can't get enough of it..
in all this Fashion Week hoopla, who is really being represented? Whose fashion week is on the raider?
weirdly enough African Fashion week seem to always go under the rader fashion season after fashion season. never the same hype, never with the same vigor and attention accorded to the rest. where are the globe trotting streetstyle bloggers capturing tons of photos of the sartorial bests of the fashion insiders?
where are the fashion editors who for the past few fashion seasons have held OUR 'tribal, ethnic' trend hostage? where were the designers who in the last few seasons havewhere were the popular fashion bloggers of influence who can fly all the way to New Zealand ... can they not afford tickets to Africa? The whole thing
adopted, appropriated, stolen African prints/wax/batics as their fabric of choice never ever giving credit?
