By C. E. Mayo on March 22, 2013
Format: Flexibound Verified Purchase
This book was very informative and the color photos are of exceptional quality. The book turned out to be more than just a collection of photos of African Fashion as I initially expected: it includes a brief overview of African fashion of the past and now in the 21st century; it chronicles past, current and up-and-coming designers (who knew YSL's name would appear on this list); the book gives insight into the African-French fashion connection; it provides images of models of African decent who have made and are making names for themselves on the catwalks of the world and in print ads and of course the photos provide us a wonderful catalogue of African textiles.

Great book, just what I wanted, I have learned a lot about something I am very interested in and could not find much information about. With this book and online search engines I am developing my photo aesthetic for African fashion.
