Ok….so I feel that NO ONE should wear ‘african print’ just because and kudos to our many African designers who know how to use it rather than the whites who claim it as their own *side-eye* Yes, I am extremely prejudice on this.

 I kind of felt the same way when i started to see this trend of doing african print clothes here in the western world. Like they where stealing and claiming it! But then i thought about it and figured that it’s our responsibility ( us african’s, african designers) to make sure it’s origins is always known by continuing to create original designs from the home land and promote it to the western world. It’s as if they are the student and we are the master…and the first will not over power the second one because contrary to “strangers” for whom this is a new trend that will come and go ( or transform), this is a form of art in Africa!
Plus i love seeing the marriage between African prints and western designs….it’s like a “metissage” of the two cultures ! Lets embrace this :)
