The African fashion has been on a constant rise as many designers have gained their well-deserved recognition.
The traditional motifs combined with innovative and futuristic patterns create a unique styling that attracts the Western world.
Here are some examples of distinguished African Fashion Designers from all over the continent.
If you have a champion boxer father and a Miss Cameroon mother, you inevitably inherit some of the talent and charm genes. Imane Ayissi from Cameroon had this advantage, which initially introduced him into the world of modelling.
He eventually pursued a career in fashion by designing his own line of women clothing.
His couture and pret-a-porter designs incorporate African tribal art into Parisian Houte Couture.
Although she is originally from Ivory Coast, she has led a nomadic life by relocating to Brazil and then the US.
Her career started at a very young age when she started designing clothes at 13. Her family supported her to pursue and complete a fashion degree in New York.
With the experience she gained while interning with Jill Stuart, Yigal Azrouel and Cynthia Rowley, she launched a brand in New York and back in her home country. She is known for using tribal paints on futuristic designs.
If you have seen the iconic dresses of Black Panther stars at the film’s World Premiere, then you must have heard of Laduma MaXhosa.
Although he always says his inspiration was the Italian lines like Missoni, he also stayed truthful to his Xhosa roots with the use of handcrafted beads.
He is well-known for his knitwear brand MaXhosa by Laduma, but his reputation will most likely expand further into other areas of fashion.
