Gwen Stefani does Africa

After making accessories of Asian women during her Harajuku phase, Gwen Stefani has moved on to using African wax print as the main theme in her latest collection for L.A.M.B.

While it is cool to see our cloth being walked at a NY fashion week runway, it still stings a little bit when I think of all the tailors sitting in dingy dark rooms running ancient Singers to create gorgeous dresses, who will never get the money or credit that Ms Stefani will likely receive for her work.

You can see the rest of the collection here

Meanwhile here is a piece by Ugandan designer Gloria Wavamunno for Africa Fashion Week, that I think is gorgeous.
