I had the opportunity to speak with the #African Vibes Magazine editor-in-chief Belle Niba about the ‘#I Wear African‘ fashion show held in Los Angeles recently and profiled the work of two designers #Christiane King and #Kahindo Mateene, whose work was featured in this years event.
African Vibes Magazine editor, Belle Niba has always been a follower of fashion. However, I found this out recently, after asking her how much of a fashion fan she was. Her reply was clear.”OMG! I’m a die-hard fashion fan… a total sucker for fashion week too!”
It makes sense then, that Niba would use this love of fashion to “shine a positive light on Africa and Africans,” by organizing a fashion show, held in Los Angeles recently. This event was called, “I wear African.”
