Behind the Scenes: An African Fashion Story
Let’s face it, no one can do without clothing, whether you are fashion conscious or not you need to cover yourselves up!
Each day, we put on clothes that not only cover ourselves but represent our individual personalities, desires, taste, moods, the era we live in, and even the message we want to send across.
From the above its therefore rather intriguing when we forget the people behind the clothes we are so crazy about. The designers who painstakingly dedicate their time and energy into searching for the perfect fabric, designing, measuring, and cutting are the people we forget about.
Who are the people behind the designs we wear every day?
What drives them into designing such masterpieces?
How are they able to think so creatively?
How did they get their start?
The answers to these questions and more are what we at Nivishe Africa hope to discover as we profile top African designers. At Nivishe Africa bring you designers and their stories.
