I did a recent photoshoot wearing a coat from Dashiki Pride. I absolutely love the styles, the colors, the pride of all African clothing. There is something that screams pride when I wear this jacket however, this isn’t just something I wear because it is fashionable. As an African American when I wear something like this I need to understand it’s heritage. Dashiki Pride was started by three sisters; Mirian, MarySonia, and Lilian. The siblings were born and raised in Aba, Nigeria. I fully want to support and understand my roots. I think my understanding and pride of being an African American shows through my clothes. I want to incorporate more African clothing in my style.
