Happy Independence Day Suriname

Srefidensi_SurinameHiep Hiep Hooray!!!

After Africa Fashion Week Amsterdam (AFWA 2014) I am so in the spirit of African fashion and African music, that while googling for Diana Tambe, the founder of AFWA, I stumbled on a music video by Yemi Alade. A beautiful 25 year old singer from Nigeria. This music video captured my attention right away. First thing I noticed: her outfits! Love it.

Topshop in Amsterdam.

I’ve heard about Topshop via internet and was a little bummed that it isn’t in the Netherlands. So I thought.

All this was going through my mind when I saw their fashion for the first time. Just two days ago I found out that Topshop is also in the Netherlands.

But for those living in the Netherlands at least the show will première on monday March 31st. Continue reading “If it’s in, it’s on the Fabulist..One more night!”
