This week at a function I attended with a friend, we watch as Africans in diaspora stood out in their unique African attires. It was a sight indeed to behold, our dear brothers and sisters all turning out in different beautifully designed clothes from back home. As friends from other nationality in our midst watched and admired us, it quickly brought my mind back to some thing that has really being bothering me.
Why in the face of our unique fabrics, styles and designs do those back home still yearn for foreign clothes? African clothes makes head turn, from the fabrics to the designs/styles and the carriage of our men and women when they put on these clothes gets people to notice them.
We are blessed with good fabrics, talented designers and what more do we ask for. To crown it all, our ladies and men knows how to match these designs for every Occassion.
Let us not sacrifice this for Western clothes, when next you think of any celebration always think African designs, it sure would make you stand out.
