LONDON — African design talent will be given a step up into the international fashion spotlight thanks to Kisua, a new e-boutique and talent incubator.
“I think the world is looking at Africa right now,” Kisua founder and chief executive officer Samuel Mensah told WWD. “There’s a lot of focus on Africa in general, and we have a very rapidly growing middle class that can afford and seek out good-quality fashion; international fashion as well as African-inspired fashion. The talent has always been here, we just lacked a platform like this to show it to consumers.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
