Lets face facts, Africans are gifted and we are peculiar in all ramification including the world of fashion. Admittedly we haven’t been all that great in supporting our own due to what a lot of people refer to as the “colonial complex”.
The “Colonial complex” is just a way to explain our love for all things western and lack thereof of our own. There are of cause those who would say that there are deciding factors that we ought to look at but this post is not a thesis on whether or not we have and had this complex, its more about the strides we’ve taken in breaking free.
As part of Africa, Nigeria has been a big influence in the continents growth and popularity however, our growth in the fashion industry took a while before the influence reached the diaspora.
Many Nigerians patronized the Aba industry since it was cheap and affordable but to a larger extent people choose goods from the US, UK and China over what could easily be gotten here. While the #madeinnigeria campaign has opened our eyes to the potentials of the country and continent as a whole there is still a large area that need to be covered.
So far, we do have to be thankful because this change has been a long time coming.
