Dress and fashion practices in Africa and the diaspora are dynamic and diverse, whether on the street or on the fashion runway. Focusing on the dressed body as a performance site, African Dress explores how ideas and practices of dress contest or legitimize existing power structures through expressions of individual identity and the cultural and political order. Drawing on innovative, interdisciplinary research by established and up and coming scholars, the book examines real life projects and social transformations that are deeply political, revolving around individual and public goals of dignity, respect, status, and morality. With its remarkable scope, this book will attract students and scholars of fashion and dress, material culture and consumption, performance studies, and art history in relation to Africa and on a global scale.

Ever since the late 1960s when Yves Saint Laurent and Paco Rabanne presented African-inspired collections, the textiles, details, and colors of Africa have moved into the realm of high fashion. In the past few years, young designers from the continent itself have emerged as people to watch in the fashion world. Helen Jennings, editor of award-winning ARISE magazine, offers in this book a brief history of African fashion, beauty and style, follows its influence on modern designers, and spotlights the best designers, photographers, and models from across the continent and the African diaspora. Profiling popular lines such as Duro Olowu, Jewel by Lisa, Black Coffee, and Eric Raisina, Jennings explores the myriad reasons why African fashion is having its moment in the sun. She shows how designers are looking beyond cliches of the African aesthetic by embracing both traditional and contemporary fabrics and garments, and how the passion for ethically and environmentally conscious clothing is fueling this trend. As colorful and exciting as the fashions it features, this volume will appeal to anyone interested in following the world's most exciting new fashion development.

It is not unusual to see the colors and hear the rhythms of Africa at runway shows in Paris, New York, or Milan. But despite its influence on Western designers, African fashion is still struggling to make itself known. With the ambitious goal of reinventing urban fashion, many young African designers are breaking away from the expectations imposed on them to infuse ethnic and folkloric themes into their work. This book brings together archival images, illustrations, and photographs to paint a lively picture of this constantly evolving world, featuring designers and labels including Alphadi, Xule Bet, Oumou Sy, Juliette Ombang, Mickael Kra, and more.

The fashion world missed out on a great designer when young Jim Howard chose illustration as his career. He became famously successful, but always wanted to design as well as illustrate. Now he gets his chance to create "Jim Howard's Fashion Originals" for paper dolls. His second book, with 22 original designs, is inspired by two exotic cultures, Japan and Africa, each represented by a glamorous ethnic doll. From Africa come chic high fashions based on native dress, on prints, patterns and materials including animal prints and primitive arts and crafts. From Japan come elegantly refined creations inspired by ancient artifacts, graceful kimonos and delicate paintings. Jim's talent as an illustrator turns every page of this new book into a work of art from one of the most accomplished fashion artists of our time... and now, also a designer of original fashions for paper dolls.
