Rahme Wetterich & her sister Marie Darouiche came up with a cool african inspired version of the traditional Bavarian Dirndl.Their brand Noh Nee is nicely accepted by local fashionistas in their hometown Munich.I love the colors, the little tablier it reminds me of my childhood when we would wear little dresses like this paired with ballerinas.Nice to see that we can still do it as adults represent our culture yet stay modern.If you pay close attention to the dresses , you’ll see that they mix and match various fabrics, they may use a wax fabric and pair it with an animal print fabric, little details def’ make a difference.http://www.dirndlalafricaine.com Yaye

I totally get what executive producer Nosarieme Garrick is trying non will do with this 8 Parts documentary (the series will be available mid 2013) on what  Africans are really doing.I gets the project so much because that’s what my webbie is about; showing our talents and our thirst for growth.Nosa has written for publications like Afripop,Sahara Reports so she knows what she’s talking about.In the trailer she goes to her home country Nigeria and meets up with a nigerian photography collective and follows them as they carry on with their projects.

Soavina is by trade an architect, having to study for his courses urbanism, he found himself playing with his camera around the under privileged neighberhoods of his hometown Antananarivo. People who have architectural background make interesting artists I find. Soavina has showcased his work in France, Berlin in Bamako where he took part @the Rencontres Photographique de Bamako (by the way with all the political tension I’m not sure what will become of that festival).I was checking out some of his work on his webbie & I really like the series he called ” Les Lutteurs” being that wrestling is HUGE in my country it’s nice to see that that even in Madagascar it’s a current sport. I also liked the series ” Ecole d’art au village” a series on local malgachy kids learning art @ school, do visit his webbie he has interesting work. Soavina also does video work,
