OUR MOTHER’S PRIDE S/S 2022
This collection examines the life of marginalized people in Africa with focus on the LGBTQIA+ community; their existence, history, lifestyle, struggles and emergence.
Nothing can be more ironical than the saying that “Being who you are is Unafrican”. Several researches have shown the existence of queerness on the continent as far back as the pre-colonial era.
The collection seeks to celebrate the lives of every human being the society has forced to live in the closet, who have broken the norm by coming out, who have continued to fight for the freedom and protection of all lives; victimized by the society but fail to be weakened.
The collection features bright colors and symbols as motif that signifies diversity, cut outs, waves and structures
You are the Pride of Africa,
You are what it means to be African
You are our Mother’s Pride.
