It is sad that less and less people are taking time to really appreciate how rich and diverse our African culture is. We are so fast to adapt the “most modern” way of living , “most modern” textiles, “most modern” interior design etc..
Is it really possible to find a balance between staying modern while still drawing inspiration from our culture? A cross breed of some sorts? This is exactly what lead me to carry out this project “Fari” (an African queen in Gambian). The inspiration on this series is mainly drawn from our bold African accessories and vibrant textiles.
My African queen is bold, modern, simple, exquisite and in touch with her roots. I hope you will enjoy the series and it will inspire you to celebrate your roots.
