An African fashion bordering between desire and rebellion
For its 20th edition, the International Festival of African Fashion has swapped its native Niger for Dakhla, Western Sahara. For Alphadi, the festival’s founder and president – himself a designer – fashion is all about collaboration. It’s a tool for forging communities and encouraging integration. This year, as ever, it’s important for the continent to have a chance to put its best foot forward… the world, after all, is watching.
