Over the past few years I had started to hate how African print fabric was being presented. I hated that every designer (mostly in Ghana) felt the need to identify with the fabric. But then I walked into a fabric shop in Makola with a friend and me being the child I am got blown away by the colours. So I wondered what I would do different with the fabric if they were in my hands. I thought how different could I present them. So I decided to play with the colours and present them how I saw my mother do it when I was growing up.
AFRICAN PRINT ROCKS!!!
I will be uploading a series of photos over a period of time (with a vintage theme running) as I have a huge pile of fabric to go through. I hope it will be a fun journey with all the colourful fabric and props that will be used.
African Print Rocks after all
These photos are going to shot on a Canon 5D Mark ii, Canon 85mm, Canon 24-105mm in my friend’s bedroom (the purple wall is awesome) with just a flash mounted on the camera (information for those who want to know what equipment I use)
