The future of African Fashion is the hand of great designers and writers, but also people with street style finesse. Just check out the African Fashion prom dress by Kyemah McEntyre breaking the internet in all types of way as a guide to see what I mean. It’s not about wearing one African piece here and there, taking photos and simply putting it on social media for your followers to like. No, it’s so much more than that and with Africa fashion that is as utterly amazing, beautifully designed and effortlessly elegant as the person wearing the outfit itself, this photo of Kyemah illustrates it all.
In my opinion what makes Kyemah a street style phenomenon in this outfit of hers is that it slips seamlessly between ethereal, quirky, and oh so trendy. This is something that any street style maven for African Fashion really has to portray from the very beginning in our contemporary world. Even sans logo, or ankara or whatever material you may use, your clothes, that which you describe as African fashion needs to be instantly identifiable as one with a level of craftsmanship that is flawless.
African Fashion Street Style has to also speak a language that speaks about style, and that becomes timeless. It should always be about inspiring people to want to wear what you are wearing. I think if you are an African Fashion Street Style maven, this is what you really want. For a proof look no further than all the photos of Kyemah in her Afro-inspired prom dress. Lord knows I want that dress in my size.
