African fashion has long been ignored and copied for decades.  Very little has been done to differentiate the uniqueness of individuality in the African designs among various countries that make up this beautiful continent.

According to Nish Kanabar [millennial entrepreneur] in an interview with Financial Times

“Africa’s fashion industry is undeniably bursting with potential, full breakout designers, engaging opinion leaders and deep-rooted culture. It is paramount that we emphasize and celebrate each country independently, as you would any other”

African designers like Steven French [Ghanaian Designer], Emmy Kasbit, Lisa Folawiyo, Orange Culture and many more are one of the few of many African designers that have gained global press and international clientele.

Supermodel, Naomi Campbell and Former Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa May have made headlines while wearing Steve French and Emmy Kasbit

For the cover, Tiwa savage wore a blazer and lace dress by Lisa Folawiyo.
