Changing the clutch sleeve: Kama Afrika

So we purchased a gorgeous 8yards of Nigerian Ankara for the Independence Party. I realised how played out the first clutch sleeve seemed to me so of course I was going to change it up! Out with the old, in with the new!

Black Power: Philip Treacy

Last week Philip Treacy showcased his hats and fascinators for his SS13 collection using only black models.
I take my hat off in respect and admiration to him (no pun intended)
Beautiful jawline!
He took a big step for us by putting all black models on the runway, especially considering that the industry is full of discrimination.
He even payed respect to our uncle MJ with the jackets



Alek Wek was among the models for his show. Lets just say that Philip has made fashion history for black women! For all we know, the next fashion week could include short models, plus sized models or disabled models. I'm all for breaking the rules of fashion!

Last Academic Year's Projects

I LOVE extreme fashion and I gain so much enjoyment from experimenting and trying new stuff!
So, my projects last year was to make an item based on surfaces (coursework) and the other one was to make an item based on meetings, encounters and experiences (exam).
Whilst most of my class set their mind on making arty pieces, I was the usual one who didn't want to be the same and set my heart upon fashion...
(Not good quality images)

Anna's blazer on top of my dress

LOL as for this one, the stuck on pennies were inspired by rap artists who "make it rain".

This was my exam...yes made from a "Ghana must go" bag, shower curtains, flannels and a sponge. Inspired by Victor & Rolf and Project Runway. Showing my domestic experience and my encounter of domestic items which can be made into fashion!!!!
