Like a moth attracted to a sweet spot I’ve been drawn towards the beauty of African print. It has that magic touch of satisfaction where something unusual feels like it should’ve always been in my life. I love the electric powerplays of colour… the fluid graphics..the exuberant clashes..it’s a buzz that gathers and turns a piece of material into a stage..
Anna is doing her best to distract me..she says Burberry ‘did it’ last summer..and she’s not wrong…

But I think it’s time for the love affair to diffuse down the food-chain…I want to see more on the streets generally..there are legs on this baby… These photos were taken by MG Onania for Fashizblack Magazine..
