Fashion Illustration Africa

by Tapiwa Matsinde

Discover Africa’s rising generation of fashion illustrators who are bringing diversity to the industry. Fashion Illustration Africa is a vibrant, visually inspiring sourcebook that presents the work of 23 dynamic fashion illustrators and designers drawn from across Africa and the diaspora, whose work is shaping what has until now been a virtually non-existent commercial industry across the continent. Given a voice by social media and the internet’s democratizing, border-crossing abilities, this is a young and digitally savvy generation who are also championing diversity in a global industry that tends to be defined by one model of beauty and style.
