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:
“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?
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.”
