Africa Always On My Mind

I have traveled to the continent of Africa four times and it has stolen my heart. Stepping on African earth awakens my spirit and warms my heart. While I live miles away from this land that holds an essence of my being, I connect to it through my fashion on a daily basis. Intricate patterns, bold fabrics, hand embroidery and beadwork are African details that I incorporate into my daily wardrobe. I respect the hands that create this art and the traditions that allow history to be shared with future generations. Forever in my heart, Africa, is always on my mind.
