"Bloom": VLISCO’s Spring 2014 Lookbook.

In their latest Spring 2014 lookbook, Vlisco, the Dutch Wax clothing and textile brand with a strong presence in West and Central Africa, reinterprets florals with their appropriately titled ‘Bloom’ collection.

Yes! And my night has been made because I got an email from Vlisco requesting to send me fabrics so I hope some of these prints will be included! *greedy eyes*

These are the most incredible fabrics I have ever seen. My life needs that second-from-the-bottom dress.

Went to the Kae Sun & Fela Band show at the Apollo last night - part of the Africa Now festival. Wow wow wow. What a show and what a night. And Fela’s music is simply out of this world - I can’t imagine what it must have felt like to see him perform.

Kae Sun rocked it at The Apollo last night. Wish he could have played for longer.

Testing out the gif maker plugin for Chrome (Make GIF) 

I started this project a few weeks ago after being appalled at the lack of diversity in the way women are represented in gifs. So I am trying to put together a tumblr which collects gifs which portray a wide range of women and girls doing a wide range of things. 
If you want to submit gifs, suggest movies/people I search gif databases for - or even create your own gifs, please please do. What I have is still lacking in terms of my vision so any help I can get will be much appreciated. Contact me via Tumblr of on Twitter @kate_p

We took such care of tomorrow, but died on the way there.

My body
is burning
with the shame
of not belonging.

My body
is longing.

But nobody knows that.
