Street Snaps: Odunde!

Did everyone enjoy Odunde a few weekends ago? Broad&Market had a post or two about the 36th annual African festival, and I’ll continue here with a third. The style was incredibly refreshing: vibrant colors, patterns, and silhouettes were seemingly concentrated into a nexus point that was South and 23rd. For example:

Michelle and family.

“I’m forty. Hometown, New York. I live in Philly.”

Is it exciting to be at a festival where everyone is encourage to wear traditional clothing?

“This is my everyday style. I’m a hair stylist, so (it’s my everyday style).”

Cool. Are there any things you take in that inspire or inform the way you want to present yourself when you get dressed?

Different blogs sometimes. Rachel Stewart’s blog… Um…I can’t think of any blogs now. I’ve seen so many! The Sartorialist? Yeah.”

I heard he was in town for the week.

“I heard! [unintelligable part :( ]”

Is there anything you’re wearing right now that’s a favorite?

“My necklace. I just like the colors.”

And do you have a current obsession?

“Earrings. Bright and big earrings. And feathers. And glasses. Yeah, that is my current obsession. Cause earrings are always my obsession. But glasses.”

Michelle has been a natural hair stylist for 15 years, and you can get in touch with her via Twitter: @yesidohrmlondon.
