Kimonos made with African wax fabric by Wafrica.

Interesting point of this being transnational or a third aesthetic rather than multicultural or fusion-like. Rather than just a commercial opportunity for a younger market (of which there's part), I can also see a dialogue, a greeting, an exploration between cultures. The more I learn about postmodernism, the less I know if we are happily overcoming it or if it is just laughing on our faces (I know cultural debates don't really do that, but hey).
I've been seeing all these African print clothes sprouting everywhere in Europe this spring (World Cup, maybe?), but,as you can see, this is just the beginning. Bring. It. On.
Thanks to Onafrica. Via Africa is a Country. Also see the Japan Times.
