Few weeks ago the Cannes Festival 2018 was happening in France, and it is very proudly that Africa and its diaspora was shining on the red carpet of this 71st edition.
Between the dancing and symbolically strong apparition of the collective of the 16th women co-writer of “Black is not a job”, the presence of one of this women, Khadja Nin, in the jury of the festival, and the first nomination ever of a Kenyan movie in this ceremony, the continent was honourably represented and inspiring!

Therefore, Fashion Africa focus today on some strong looks of this divers African personalities:
Balmain could not but catch our attention by dressing most of the women part of the emblematic co-writer collective that was on the red carpet for the projection of the movie “Burning”.
It is with glitters, black, white and metallic fabrics that the designer Roustaing dress these women. We find in those looks some glamorous and sometimes androgen styles, which are faithful to the house. Here, the strong personalities of these black women, proud of their roots, bring an afro-futuristic style to those looks!


The Burundian Khadja Nin on her side did multiple remarkable apparitions over the festival. Wearing revisited traditional outfit, like her Kimono-liked dress with “pagne disque” print that she was wearing for the opening ceremonie, she brings a strong African touch to the famous red carpet! It is almost in a contemporary way and with a lot of style that the singer wear proudly her head wraps more incredible and royal one than each other.


Finally, the fresh, colourful and androgen looks of the Kenyan Sheila Munyiva and Samantha Mugatsia give them a young and trendy style at the image of the Kenyan youth of today, descript in their movie!
