Fashion is seen differently everywhere from the denizens of the streets of London, always distinctively dressed, with personalities expressed before you’re even close enough to greet them. In Europe fashion is shorthand for sophistication and grace, Milan is provocative and ‘molto sexy’, and New York style is renowned for being sleek yet powerfully with daring. In Africa, fashion is equally distinctive. Aside from a palate of playful colors and prints that Africa is known for, the regal African silhouette is becoming more and more recognizable.
