African Creatives To Be Celebrated Through FestivalAFRICANA

Published

on

The talents of African creatives will be magnified through a series of programming by Pittsburgh-based FashionAFRICANA. They have teamed up with Paris, France-based retail company MoonLook to present the inaugural FestivalAFRICANA. Their aim is to give audiences an up-close-and-personal look at African culture through fashion and design.

The first installment of the four-part event series, which will continue into 2021, takes place in a virtual format this weekend, Oct. 17-18 at FestivalAFRICANA.com. The plan is for future FestivalAFRICANA events to be held in person when it’s safe to gather in large groups again.

FestivalAFRICANA is spearheaded by three Black women from Africa and the African diaspora. There is Demeatria Boccella, a global philanthropy professional and founder of Pittsburgh-based FashionAFRICANA; Nelly Wandji, a Paris-based Cameroonian producer, gallerist and branding/retail specialist; and Saran Koly, a London-based Pan-African multi-faceted artist, writer, and creative director. 
“My prime goal as a cultural entrepreneur has always been to create a safe place for interactions between nations and continents because when we share our culture and creativity with others, we celebrate our authenticity as storytellers and solidify our singularities,” says Wandji in a press release. “That is exactly my summary for our selection of these creatives. They are part of global conversations, yet they remain authentic and proud of their heritage, traditions, and they revive centuries-old know-hows into the DNA of their brands.”
For the first virtual installment, attendees can expect to see the premiere of There is No Place Like Home, a fashion editorial short film showcasing the best established and emerging Ghanaian designers, hear conversations focused on Black women shaping the fashion, beauty and lifestyle industries, enjoy a live performance by Ghanaian artist and singer, Worlasi, and take part in master classes in African dance, among other things.

“The late playwright, August Wilson, taught us, ‘There is an Africa in each of us that we have to get in touch with to understand our relationship to this society.’ This festival is a celebration of that individual and collective journey, and all African creatives and creativity,” says Boccella. “My journey back to self has been fed by the beauty and vibrancy of the Diaspora, especially the union of fashion and art. I grow a little each day by sharing that union with the world, and I would like to continue connecting to culture through design.”
Registration is free and open now at FestivalAFRICANA.com.

Manju Journal And A Vibe Called Tech’s Latest Collaboration With Gucci Is A Vivid Celebration Of Ghanaian Culture

Published

on

“The current youth in Ghana – a lot of the guys – already have bags like that,” says fashion stylist Kusi Kubi, speaking of Gucci’s Jackie 1961 bag. Together with Richmond Orlando Mensah of Manju Journal, a celebratory platform dedicated to elevating the work of African creatives, and Charlene Prempeh’s agency A Vibe Called Tech, Kubi was asked to collaborate with the Italian brand and reimagine the famed Jackie. A series of wonderfully bright portraits comprise the project, alongside a film that outlines the concept.

After working as a freelance stylist and brand consultant for several publications and clients, in addition to projects with Skepta, Labrinth and Calvin Klein, Kubi was appointed Manju Journal’s fashion director. Talk of the collaboration began back in February, when Kubi was discussing future projects while staying in Ghana.

Charlene got in touch via email about an exciting opportunity, but didn’t mention the brand at first. “The brief was really nice because obviously it was all about the Jackie 1961 redesign and the whole concept of the bag was a genderless fluid attitude, so we thought this fitted really well with Ghanaian culture,” Kubi remarks.

He is referring to the fact that Alessandro Michele’s reimagined Jackie 1961 bag made its debut on the runway of his combined menswear and womenswear autumn/winter 2020 show. “It transcends the classical categorisations of accessories thanks to its non-binary attitude. Smaller in size than the original, the bag is present in the house’s fashion shows combined with suits, grunge outfits and clothing of reduced proportions,” Michele said after the show.

Entitled “We Are All They”, the visuals explore gender fluidity in Ghanaian culture. “I speak two dialects: Twi and Ga. There is no ‘he’ or ‘she,’ everyone is ‘they’,” Kubi tells British Vogue. Keen to portray the Jackie in a new light, Kubi assembled an all-Ghanian team in Accra to showcase the beauty of male intimacy seen in everyday life. A Vibe Called Tech brought everyone together – photographer David Nana Opoku Ansah captured the vibrant imagery, Orlando Mensah masterminded the art direction and Kubi was in charge of the direction of the film and styling.

Multiple locations featured throughout, including Jamestown – one of the oldest districts in Accra – and the capital city itself. “It’s nice to show and shoot it in that kind of location with so much history; we’re adding more history to it.”
