LVMH Prize Finalists Include Two African Designers

PARIS — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has unveiled the names of the eight finalists for the LVMH Prize for Young Designers, and for the first time, designers from Nigeria, South Africa and Israel have made the final round of the competition.
“We are very proud of the international dimension of the prize. It’s really what sets it apart,” Delphine Arnault, the force behind the initiative, told WWD. “The LVMH Prize is global. It reflects the fact that fashion is now a global market, with a capacity to reach and to touch more and more people, namely thanks to the Internet.”
Among those competing for a grand prize of 300,000 euros, plus a year of coaching from experts at family-controlled LVMH — the parent of brands including Louis Vuitton, Dior and Fendi — are four labels making gender-neutral clothes, two women’s wear designers and two men’s wear designers.
“Gender issues, and the question of women’s place in society are key concerns for young people today, I believe. It’s normal therefore for designers to seize on those topics, which inform their designs,” said Arnault, who is a key talent scout at the French luxury conglomerate.
The finalists, selected by a committee of 63 fashion industry

Everybody appreciates a good block party but if you’re cool with Yo Gotti you might wanna put him in charge of the community shindig cause he’ll make it fancy.

All the proof you need is in his Lil Baby visual to “Put A Date On It” where the Tennessee rapper hires some waiters and butlers to serve him and his homies some exquisite grub on a 12-chair table in the middle of the street. Just make sure you ain’t a snitch cause that celebration can turn into a murder scene real quick and them waiters will clean up afterwards.

Back in New York Styles P is out to install more fear in white Amerikkka with his pro-Black message in his clip to “Never Fight An African.” Don’t expect this to get any burn whatsoever at any MAGA rallies even if Kanye is hosting.

South African Fashion on Show at Zeitz MOCAA

South Africa’s fashion and art crowd descended upon Cape Town this week for the pre-opening party of contemporary art museum Zeitz MOCAA’s first fashion exhibition, “21 Years: Making Histories With South African Fashion Week.”
SA Fashion Week, founded by former model Lucilla Booyzen in 1997, marked the anniversary last October with a small exhibition shown during the presentation of the SAFW 2019 fall collections in the Johannesburg suburb of Sandton City. Booyzen chose 21 designers as a historical recap of the past 21 years of SA fashion, and planned a book to accompany the exhibit.
“When Erica de Greef, the senior fashion curator of Zeitz MOCAA, heard that I was going to do a book and an exhibition, she was incredibly excited, and she then planned to do an edited version of what I did in Johannesburg at Zeitz,” Booyzen recounted.
Curated by de Greef, the exhibition occupies two gallery spaces on the museum’s fourth level and features 21 ensembles from 21 designers, spanning different styles, multiple collections and various seasons, showcasing, in effect, a micro-history of South African fashion since 1997. On show are designers such as Clive Rundle, Amanda Laird Cherry and Loxion Kulca, alongside younger names such as Sindiso Khumalo, Thebe

Report Attacks African Nations’ Justifications For Anti-Gay Laws

In response to the increasing criminalization of homosexuality throughout Africa in recent years, an international team of researchers released a scientific report countering every government justification for enacting anti-gay laws.

A group of scientists shredded every argument used by African governments to justify the recent glut of anti-gay laws across the continent in a new, scathing report.

The report published Wednesday by the Academy of Science of South Africa excoriated leaders for unscientific claims that homosexuality is contagious, unnatural, learned or a medical condition.

“As variation in sexual identities and orientations has always been part of a normal society, there can be no justification for attempts to ‘eliminate’ LGBTI from society,” the report authored by 11 South Africans, one Ugandan and one American said. “Efforts should rather be focused on countering the belief systems that create hostile and even violent environments for those who are ‘othered’ within ‘heteronormative’ societies.”

Anti-gay laws are on the books in 38 of 53 African countries, the report said, including four of seven countries worldwide where same-sex activity is punishable by death.

Homophobic sentiments intensified in Africa in recent years, the journal Nature reported, with Uganda, Gambia and Nigeria introducing anti-gay legislation last year.

The reports findings are already accepted globally in the scientific community as fact. But the authors’ argued the reports must come from Africa to root out illegitimate ideas like sexual orientation being a choice or that homosexuality is a contagious disease while extolling public health benefits of tolerance.

“It had to be Africa-led,” Glenda Gray, co-chair of the report panel, told Nature. “If it were American-led, African governments would say that it was Western propaganda.”

Female African musicians unite in ‘Poverty is Sexist’ campaign

By Kieran Guilbert LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Leading African female musicians have recorded a video of songs and instrumental music, joining a “Poverty is Sexist” campaign to put women and girls at the center of the global drive to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. Investing in women and closing the gender gap could reduce hunger, cut maternal and child deaths and boost economies in the world’s poorest countries, according to the ONE Campaign, co-founded by Irish rocker Bono to end extreme poverty and disease. The video, released on Wednesday, features seven musicians from seven African countries, including Kenya’s Victoria Kimani, South Africa’s Judith Sephuma and Mozambique’s Gambela, alongside Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde. “But when we invest in women and girls, we increase and accelerate the chances of overcoming extreme poverty.” The ONE campaign has also invited people including teenage activist Malala Yousafzai, to take a “#Strengthie”, a selfie in the pose of Rosie the Riveter, face of the famous “We can do it” poster, and post it online in support of girls and women.

Interview With the Etsy of the African Print Designer?


I have taken my time with this interview, because it is one I have been thrilled about, from the moment I was introduced to Uzuri closet. This fascinating start-up plans to offer designers, with a gift for transforming African Print Fabric into drool inducing fashion marvels.

Uzuri Closetdying from anticipation, so I can only imagine that you, my readers, and lovers of all things fabulous, must be convulsing from the excitement. Unfortunately, like the rest of us, you will have to wait to explore this shopping wonderland.

In the meantime, however, you can take a look at some of the pieces that will be available on their platform, and read my interview with the brilliant, kind, and patient, Mellanie Mfuh, Director of Operations for Uzuri’s Closet.


The team spent at least an hour with me on the phone the first time I reached out to them, I wanted to understand the Uzuri Closet vision, inspiration and goals, and boy did they open up to me.

Uzuri Closet will be a marketplace specifically for African Designers, allowing this new passionate, and talented group of emerging African artists to sell their work to a growing fan base. Their vision is really to recognize this community of talent and allow them to sell on a platform built by a team that believes in their vision.

Melanie Mfuh

Director of Operations, Uzuri’s Closet

Q-I love the idea of creating an Etsy ‘Like’ marketplace for African Designers, can you explain your vision for Uzuri’s closet?

Thank you! The concept behind Uzuri closet is to expose designers that use African prints in their designs. We love Africa and we are excited to show the world how beautiful it is through our unique prints for clothing and accessories.

Q-What inspired you to want to create Uzuri Closet?

Hmm, simply put, the love of fashion and the beauty of African Print Fabric!

Q-Do you love Fashion, did that have a role to play in your decision to create Uzuri Closet, and who are some of your favorite designers?

BERNAN instagram @Bernandoll

Yes! I believe everybody loves fashion, whether we realize it or not, we all express ourselves through our fashion sense. Some of my favorite designers are

  • Christian Siriano
  • Sean Kelly
  • Mimmy Yeboah

As you can see the simplicity and yet complexity of their designs from material to color choices to their designs! The world does not know the African designers Bernan and Mimmy Yeboah too well yet, but they do have a following on social networks.

Q-What does Uzuri mean?

Uzuri actually has the meanings “beauty” “goodness” “Beautiful” …It’s all positive things which is why we love the name. For us, the emphasis is on “Beautiful”. So Beautiful Closet or Uzuri Closet as we call it.


Q-When will Uzuri’s closet be up and running for those of us that are eager to start exploring your marketplace. Are you currently accepting designers?

Yes, we are! For now we sell through our social sites, facebook, instagram and twitter (@uzuricloset). The site should be up and running by late spring 2015. You can also reach us through email:

Q-Thank you for making time to chat with us, Melanie, did you have a 2015 resolution for your business?

For Uzuri closet we aim to work harder this year to get more designers to sell through our site and also to grab the attention of customers from everywhere.

And you have the support of a community that loves to support female entrepreneurs, and an editor with a questionable addiction to all things African Print Maxi Skirts!

Double Vision: Meet the Pairs of Twins Who Are Revolutionizing African Fashion (PHOTOS)

Say goodbye to the Olsen twins– and hello to these sibling pairs, who are bringing their own unique vision to the world of African-influenced fashion.

You may not know their names yet, but it won’t be long until you do, because these young people are talented and creative. They are twins, of African descent, bloggers for the most part, and they are part of a group of “elite influencers” who are blazing a trail in fashion.

Twins have always fascinated most people — and the Internet is no exception. Thanks to this inherent power, these twins have managed to make a name for themselves, acquiring incredible amounts of followers. Praised by acclaimed publishers such as Vogue and The Coveteur for some. Approached by brands such as Diesel, Adidas and And Other Stories for others. Collaborations continue raining down for these stylish doubles. However, we must not forget the point: these young people represent our generation. One that is proud of its cultural heritage, proud to be ebony, proud of their curly hair, proud of our style of clothes. Below are some very inspiring and inspired representatives of this “Afro-cosmopolitan” generation for you to discover and follow!

The Quann sisters

Cipriana and Takenya Quann are currently the most in-vogue twins in the blogosphere.

The Quann sisters are American and live in New York. Cipriana is the co-founder of the celebrated lifestyle blog “Urban Bush Babes” which, among other topics, celebrates the beauty of natural hair. Takenya, aka TK Wonder, is an electronic music artist. Their sense of style and their outrageous beauty have seduced many, judging by the number of brands that are fighting over them. Between advertising campaigns for the Gap, And Other Stories (a subsidiary of H&M), and interviews for Vogue, The New York Times, Refinery 29, as well as The Coveteur, I think we haven’t heard the last of them.

The Mukheli brothers

Justice and Innocent Mukheli (yes, those are their real names) are South African and live in Johannesburg. They are part of the a group called “I see a different you,” a collective of photographers.

They are known thanks to their blog of the same name, on which they share their pictures of South Africa as they see it and live it. An authentic portrait, imbued with the creativity of youth, that offers another image of this complex country.

Spotted by Diesel, the twins were involved in the advertising campaign for the launch of the collection “Edun X Diesel,” to promote talented Africans and fashion that is made in Africa. With their strong reputation, they were also able to showcase their work at an exhibition in Tokyo. I had the good fortune to interview the brothers and I can report that they’re not only super cute — they’re also very humble.

France, represent! Meet Jalan and Jibril Durimel. Originally from Guadeloupe, Jalan and Jibril live in Los Angeles. In their 20s, they pursue film studies and already have a very distinctive style. They made themselves known thanks to their street style blog, Durimel, on which they depict and share polished and minimalist editorials that reveal their taste for vintage pieces and bright colors.

Their sense of style and photography are beloved by various brands. In fact, the Durimel brothers have had numerous collaborations with Levi’s as well as Etudes studio, and magazines such as Pause Magazine, GQ and Pop Eye Magazine.

The Dotson sisters

Corianna aka Coco, and Brianna aka Breezy, are the Dotson sisters. Based in New York, they have created their own brand of glasses, “Coco and Breezy,” that seeks to make sunglasses the main element of any wardrobe and regulate clothing to the rank of accessory. Worn by Prince, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and even Rihanna, the Dotson sisters’ glasses have achieved an undeniable and unanimous success. But no doubt their ability to stand out is also thanks to their own style, at once vintage, rock and punk.

Chris and Clayton Giggs are the co-founders of the brand Lfant. Through this brand, they want to highlight values that are close to their hearts: being proud of where you come from while still being open to the world, travel, and other cultures. Discreet but no less talented, they stand out because of the “lookbooks” from their brand, in which they are featured.

The two angelic-faced brothers were featured on the Cosby Show (they played the child of the character Lisa Bonet).

Dear Madonna: Gays and African Americans Are Women, Too

There’s a seat reserved for Madonna next to Patricia Arquette.

Madge may be the high priestess of pop and an arbiter of pop culture, but the songstress proved no expert in intersectional feminism in an interview with Out Magazine about her new album, Rebel Heart.

In the story published on Tuesday, Madge opined on the state of women’s rights and other social movements. “Gay rights are way more advanced than women’s rights. People are a lot more open-minded to the gay community than they are to women, period,” she told Christopher Glazek. “It’s moved along for the gay community, for the African-American community, but women are still just trading on their ass. To me, the last great frontier is women,” she added.

The last great frontier could be women — our rights over our bodies, safety and income are under assault around the world and across the United States. Except that LGBTQ people, people of color and women aren’t three disparate groups.

Madonna’s comments are practically lock-step with Arquette’s backstage Oscars call-to-action, where she asked “gay people, and all the people of color that we’ve all fought for to fight for us now.” Arquette’s speech was a paradigm of the failings of mainstream feminism boiled down into a single sentence: White woman feminist takes credit for entire movement, erases other identities and entitles herself to the support of the LGBTQ community and people of color.

So, here’s a quick lesson for Madonna, Patricia and others struggling to understand how these identities interact with each other:

1. Gay people are women, too. We often call ourselves “lesbians” or “bisexuals” or just “LGBTQ.”
2. Women are also people of color. Sometimes referred to as WOC for short.
3. Now, let me really blow your mind: There are LGBTQ WOC.

Madonna has long been an ardent supporter of the queer community, at times, a cultural appropriator. Her work has made sex-positivity and feminism accessible to a mainstream audience. She is a trailblazer. But, in the wake of events in Ferguson and Staten Island that have brought national attention to the systematic policing and government sanctioned violence against people of color, bills in state legislatures that are seeking to legalize LGBTQ discrimination on the basis of religious beliefs and the climbing number of murdered transgender women in 2015, comparing how things have “moved along” for one identity over another is willfully ignorant. For those of us who count membership to multiple groups, these challenges to our freedom and equality are amplified and complicated by our intersectional identities.
