My three favorite African Designers of the week
As an online shopping addict, I am continuously browsing the internet for new styles and inspiration. But to my disappointment, everything just seemed to look the same these days, and I found myself bored by what my go-to online stores had to offer. So, I started researching African trends and designers, and I came across some mind-blowing creations that quite frankly I just need to share. Besides our Addis design stars, these are my top three African Designers that you need to check out!
