Africa: The Fashion Continent

From catwalks in Lagos to music festivals in Casablanca, and from 'image makers' in Marrakech to influencers in Johannesburg, a new generation of African creatives - fashion designers, photographers, bloggers, and hair and makeup artists - are redefining the continent's aesthetic grammar. 

Bold, witty, and rebellious, this young, talented vanguard draws on its heritage in order to revalorise it, while adopting an ultra-modern approach. Their revolution forms part of a continent-wide demand for cultural reappropriation and the invention of a language exclusive to Africa.

This book celebrates the ebullient creativity of a generation that is overturning codes and narratives on the African continent to write a new chapter in fashion - one that is already inspiring the world.
