African-inspired high fashion crosses over to home fashion

Africa’s Masai influences collide in a mélange of exuberant hues, silhouettes and textures.

Following a triumphal appearance of African-influenced apparel presented by the ARISE Promise Of Africa Collective at New York’s fashion week, many of the world’s front-line designers are recognizing the emerging trend of high fashion African-inspired design.

Fashion spreads in the latest Essence and Ebony magazines beautifully craft a look that is so in keeping with the Afropolitan style, with it’s creative use of traditional wax prints and patterns accompanied by exquisite accessories.

The use of traditional wax prints, while new to some, has always been a mainstay in the creation of home fashion. I am always inspired by the migration of high fashion to our home environments. Moroso proves with the Binta arm chair that modern design can be creative, cultural, and inspiring.
