Experience the Unique Fashion & Music of AfroPunk London UK
AFROPUNK LONDON UK
Last weekend I was in London attending one of my favourite festivals of the year, AfroPunk. The reason I love attending Afropunk so much is that it’s an opportunity for children of the African Diaspora to fully express themselves and their culture without having to conform to a purely Western standard of beauty.
It’s also an opportunity for other people who are curious or appreciate black culture to see, learn & enjoy black culture through our artful creativity via our glorious fashionable style & musical artistry.
At Afropunk, it's like everyone is a top fashion stylist. Garments, jewellery, and shoes have been carefully selected to display black culture from historical events to the use of the ever-growing use of Ankara prints to classic chic festival styles.
"AFROPUNK FASHION IS NOT ABOUT TRENDS: IT’S ABOUT INDIVIDUAL STYLE"
- Shantel MamMaw
so you will hardly ever see people wearing the same thing, and if you do, it will be styled in such a unique way that it looks completely different to the next person.
Whenever I attend Afropunk, there is definitely this electric loving vibe in the air a sense of self-love & pride in black culture a sense of FREEDOM!
If you missed AfroPunk this year, be sure to check it out next year. Visit their website for more details
