My Fashion Affair on Pinterest

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Hey Lovely People,just letting you in on my pinning escapades on Pinterest.

I basically pin,everything thats fashionable to me especially African designs,models,shoes bags.....everything,i tell u my affair with African Fashion runs deep.I mostly get my inspiration from various places including African Fashion bloggers everywhere all over the world and also from other African Fashion Pinners in pinterest.

I always feel like am travelling to all these countries where i get this pics from,really makes me wish to tour all over Africa in the name of Fashion.Ghana,Senegal,Nigeria Cote d voire ,somali...you name them..

And yes the clothes are made from various fabrics like Ankara,Khanga,Maasai Shuka'z,Kitenge...the thing i love most are the vibrant patterns that's what makes the fabrics stand out.

More of these are on my Pinterest Account here
