If you haven’t heard or maybe I’m late, There is now an online retailer, ONYCHEK that holds all original African made designs from African designers across the continent. They sell everything from couture garments, hand crafted jewelry, African authentic handbags and wallets etc. The fashion world is in desperate need of more minority figures to have a voice and this is a promising beginning. The pieces have a modern feel, but a pure African aesthetic. There’s even an African Fashion Dictionary to familiarize the customer with any traditional materials. Visit the site to meet all the designers involved and read more about ONYCHEK and their brilliant mission.
