Hello Afropolitans! I've noticed that an item thats growing in popularity for every woman's wardrobe is leaf earrings. I'm thrilled! They are, without a doubt, the easiest way to make a bold yet elegant fashion statement. They also come in small, medium and large sizes to match your preference.

Africa Fashion Week London 2012

In case you missed it: Africa Fashion Week - London 2011

Check us out on TV! International TV Network CCTV did a feature on us with Kweli Media. How cool is that?!

Here's the French Version

Now that African fashion is seeing more attention and having its time to shine, the debate of what to call certain African products or African inspired products is in full swing. I've written about it here and so have others.

What I find interesting is the slippery terms being used to describe anything African/Asian/Non-Western such as "tribal" or "tropical" as in "tribal print" or "tropical fabric". What do you think?


Love, love, love this idea! Totally transforms the shoes!
