Ooh, look! It’s my freshly-landed copy of the Gestalten and Design Indaba Africa Rising book. This is what they say about it:
A new wave of African creatives is on the rise and making a name for itself in design, fashion, photography, and architecture across Africa and abroad. While the colours, patterns, and crafts are profoundly rooted in African tradition, young designers infuse their creations with a disruptive edge that makes them contemporary, unique, and truly pieces that represent African design.
It’s refreshing to flip through the pages of this substantial hardcover and to see super-inspiring fashion, design and lifestyle projects from all over Africa (including Skinny laMinx, of course), disrupting that dreary old narrative of Africa-as-problem. Hooray for #afropositive vibes and awesome people doing exciting work!
