      • Akosua Afriyie-Kumi: It's time for African fashion to shine

        “Africa hasn’t been looked at as inspiration for beauty,” says Ghanaian fashion designer Akosua Afriyie-Kumi in this interview with Design Indaba in London. This is changing now, she says, especially among high-end fashion designers. Afriyie-Kumi’s own exuberant aesthetic, under her Accra-based label AAKS, draws on the colours of her country’s landscape and the patterns and resourceful lives of its local people. “I use different materials and create something new out of what we have in Ghana, making it modern,” she says of her raffia bags hand-woven by local women. Read our African Report about the designer here. Her bags, although contemporary in style, are the more traditional side of her brand. They encapsulate her core aesthetic, she says, which combines quality, craftsmanship and authenticity in contemporary African-inspired designs. The Kingston University graduate is currently working on her own print designs, which she describes as a “new kind of African print”. Her clothing range, in which the prints appear, uses an edgy but streamlined, commercially oriented approach. Afriyie-Kumi showcased her bags and clothing at the "Africa on the Catwalk" fashion show that was part of the recent Africa Utopia festival at London’s South Bank Centre. The recently launched raffia bags were also included in ethical design brand Shake the Dust’s Africa Calling exhibition at the festival and in its pop-up shop on Columbia Road in London’s East End. “African heritage plays a huge role in my work. It’s time for African fashion to really shine and show our culture.”

        • Sindiso Khumalo: I’m a textile nerd

          Self-confessed "textile nerd", Sindiso Khumalo draws on her Zulu and Ndebele heritage to create fashion with a contemporary sensibility and graphic use of pattern. “I use visual references from these cultures a lot in my work,” says the fashion designer, who creates her own textile prints. Born in Durban, South Africa, she now lives and works in Hackney, London. Khumalo creates bold garments and accessories inspired by Zulu beadwork and Ndebele patterned-walls. Although still very much connected to her motherland, she believes the cultural diversity and cosmopolitanism of her new home is influential in her creative work too. “What drew me to fashion is my strong interest in creativity and the arts,” says Khumalo. Khumalo studied architecture at the University of Cape Town before moving to London to work in the office of renowned architect David Adjaye. She cites the Bauhaus Movement as a strong influence in her work – in particular, its use of colour and emphasis on line and pared-down forms. At Africa Utopia in London, Khumalo showcased two collections, Spring/Summer 2013 and Autumn/Winter 2014. Her Spring/Summer 2013 collection is influenced by the market place and taxi ranks in Durban: “All the chaos and collision of colour and craziness that exists there is interpreted in this collection,” she explains. The Autumn/Winter 2014 collection reveals Khumalo’s interest in the rituals practised in African countries before missionaries arrived on the continent. She looked to Nigeria and West African culture in particular: “The collection is an interpretation of what people in these counties wore during religious practices,” she says. Khumalo believes that Africa is alive with newfound independence and freedom. “People want to hear the positive stories from Africa and I believe that is what is drawing people, not only to the African fashion story, but the African story as a whole."
