My Africa fits in Everywhere.

Sep 9, 2016 | Fashion

Being African in the Western world is always such an exciting state of affairs.. I relish and welcome every opportunity to look inwards, project my culture and fuse it with contemporary pieces.

Today’s outfit was for traipsing the streets of Dublin. I am wearing “Constance”, part of  the pieces designed for Zinkata’s debut collection. It is a dress drawing inspiration from the traditional blouse and wrapper worn by women in Africa.I absolutely love it!! It also comes in different exciting prints.. All made from Original Dutch Vlisco Fabric.

For today’s look, I paired it with light blue sneakers, a face-cap and Sunglasses. I absolutely love the pairings of the quite traditional ethnic dress with sporty/contemporary pieces. I believe it made for quite an interesting and really cool outfit.. Which is really my reality.. An African girl with strong traditional leanings yet influenced strongly by the western world.

“Your culture and tradition does! Be proud of it and flaunt it as much as you can!”

Proudly African❤️❤️❤️.
