According to the Esmod exhibit curator, the Lagos, Dakar, and Ghana fashion weeks are becoming stronger.
When we talk of African fashion, Wax print is undoubtedly what comes to mind. The print was first created in Java before it was transported to Europe by traders from Dutch.
Interestingly, a large percentage of the wax material is still produced in the Netherlands, although 90% of the fabric is bought and sold in the African continent.
In 2014 alone, the Netherland made over 400 million Euros in net from the sales of wax materials.
Esmond believes that the adaptation of the fabric in the African continent has gone a long way to help promote fashion acceptance and integration in the continent.
I have selected some of the best African fashion week photos in Lagos, Dakar, and Ghana – yes, in Wax of cause.
