They say, “all good things come to an end.” Today, I’m sharing the African outfits I wore from my days of African fashion series in on epic roundup post for your convenience.
This was the first time that I’ve ever worked on a series of this magnitude. It has been an exciting process from the conception of the idea, to getting all 30 best African print clothing, to shooting each look in the heart of Alaska’s winter (think subzero degree weather).
Working with a diverse group of talented African attire designers gave me the opportunity to take a peek into the lives of the creative entrepreneurs and the love they endear towards the creation of phenomenal African wax pieces.
I sure put my photographer, SNH Photos, to the test. We shot 10 outfits from morning to late afternoon on one day we had nicer winter weather. I had to warm up during outfit changes, which stretched out our shoot. But he was a trooper
I might be a little biased, but I think these are the best African outfits I’ve seen in a while 😉
