Longer description: A Ghanaian hot soup with a kick! Softened by powdery Yam.
Potent visual flavours and colours are represented in heritage wax block prints, ‘Yam Flowers’ and ‘Water World’, also known as ‘Pigs Jaw” a sweet meaty addition sometimes added to the soup at a Chop Bar. Not everyone can handle the power of the pepper soup in an elegant one-size Kimono shrug, can you?

Afropolitan Kimono EmethicaLuxury looks at food concepts translated into wearable fashion, in the Afropolitan Concept, creating diffusion range of nonchalant Kimono shrug a slice of Afro Eccentricity!

Afropolitan Street Food Concept: EmethicaLuxury looks at food concepts translated into wearable fashion, in the Afropolitan Concept, creating diffusion range of nonchalant Kimono shrug a slice of Afro Eccentricity!

Silhouette and Form: Afrocentric Kimonos focus on how dancers move. Cloudia looked at the practical Kimono and its easy to wear ‘one size fits all’ model for this collection. She looked at structures and how square shapes (Kimono blocs) mould on to round shapes (human form).

Prints Designs: Having found that Kimonos have symbolic elements and meanings behind them, she researched West African wax block prints and found that a number of them had names and meanings, such as ‘Ama Serwa’ (a small hot pepper); ‘Men Are Not Pillows’ and ‘You can't get good taste from the back of your hand’.

Cultures: These are most accessed through food, music, and clothing styles, researched the fabrics as she looked at culture, tradition and behaviour, settling on food as a universal language. On this occasion trendy street foods of Accra are used to communicate these in these Afropolitan Fashion garments.
