The Wafrica Kimonos collection is the result of two traditional cultures designing and emerging to create a fine example of an artistic fusion of the two cultures.African Cameroonian artist Serge Mouangue and the Japanese kimono designer Kururui blended both culture’s aesthetics to create this meaningful collaboration. Africa’s striking motifs and colorful patterns while the design retains the tradition robe shape of kimonos. Mouanague stated that their design is not a creation for an attempt fashion statement nor a profitable business venture. The design was created to start a conversation about the cultural identities. “In response to the argument that globalization may rob us of our cultural identity, a conversation between two ancient, strong and sophisticated identities: Japan and Africa.” RIGHT ON!! Mouangue… one time for the CULTURE!

Mmmm…. Not sure what the caption say BUT this not cultural design is SUPER DOPE!
