Dazzling African Fashion Styles of 2021
African fashion dresses are a relatively new phenomenon in the high fashion world. For a long time, the continent’s cultural history of vibrant colors and costumes was considered too far removed to be relevant for designers. But now African design is finally starting to make waves on the international stage.
Lema, who Brings African Fashion to the World
In the early 2000s, an Africa fashion style label called Elea International was created in Nairobi, Kenya. Elea quickly became one of the continent’s most visible global brands, thanks to the talents of Kenyan designer Silas Lema. Now, Lema is expanding his designs beyond his native Kenya to include a few other African countries.
