African Fashion Does Not Need Aid.

Quote of the Day by Deola Sagoe: “We don’t need aid, we need partnerships. We cannot continue to be a beggar nation. I have always believed you shouldn’t give the man the fish, but teach the man how to fish and he will be able to take care of himself and others.”

-Deola Sagoe , leading lady of African fashion, is a haute couture fashion designer from Ondo State in Nigeria. Deola has been at the cutting edge of high fashion since 1989 and became the first black woman to present a collection at Alta Roma, Rome’s celebrated fashion week, back in 2004. Her “globally appealing” style has earned her an enviable clientèle that ranges from Africa’s first ladies, to society girls like Lydia Hearst, top model Alek Wek, and famous personalities such as Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith.
