African Fashion Style Icons of the 80s & 90s
African fashion trends have evolved through the years but there’s no disputing the fact that a lot of the African fashion styles we saw in the 80s and 90s were as a direct result of some really influential people in Africa. These were the artists, musicians, and politicians who were staples in our living rooms before the age of the internet.

This video pays respect to the African fashion style icons who influenced our parents to wear the things they did and as a direct result, the things we did. Be it African Kitenge fashion, suits or traditional clothing these African giants had hand to what society wore back then and the least we could to is recognize them for it today.
