Kate Bosworth at the Burberry Body event in an African-inspired print dress. ‘The Burberry Prorsum dress’
And there are more companies exploiting our culture, in my opinion. There are so many talented African designers who are trying to break into the design industry and cannot get a break. And at the same time fashion houses like Burberry buy the material, usually Ankara for as cheap as £5 and sell the items at sky high prices... makes you think.

When I see pictures in the media of celebrities wearing my native print I do feel prideful; do not get me wrong, I just feel like if people from Black African ethic groups can produce designs just as good then why shouldn't they be given more opportunities, after all it is their identities that are being borrowed.
