    two friends and i are obsessed with tracking the progress of africa's budding and blooming fashion scene! from little known entrepreneurs to household names, african designers (and africa-inspired designers) are slowly but surely getting noticed.

    who are some of your favorites? here's one of ours to get the conversation started...

    one of the most astounding stories in new york and london fashion comes in the nigerian-inspired designer duro olowu who won the british fashion award some time back and whose dresses and jackets still find themselves onto the backs of the rich and fabulous on both sides of the pond.
