South Africa is a hotbed of multiple cultures, ethnicities, cuisines, traditions, and clothing. The country is home to a multitude of people from different parts of the world, and the differences between these cultures can be seen.
The differences can be seen in the food these different cultures take pride in, what their traditions are, and their clothing. The clothing is what we are most interested in, mainly because, in this day and age, western clothing has become common with traditional attire being used during important ceremonies or stages in life.
African wear is deeply rooted in the heritage of the African people. Each region has a distinctive style of dressing for women and men alike, making it easy to identify a person’s origin by his or her attire. Nonetheless, the increase in the communication between regions in Africa and the world at large has promoted a mix of different African wear. For instance, it is quite common for one to spot Kente, which is initially from Ghana, in different parts of Africa and the world. In addition to this, designers find it easy to incorporate African prints into their different designs to create a masterpiece that has a unique flair in the world’s fashion scene.
