Summer Essentials 2016 & 2017 – Afrigarde creations

Afrigarde is a South African neck art range, created by the totally cool Maria Uys (seriously, she’s so cool).

How many days can I style up my festive and post-festive  looks, with the Afrigarde choker?

I put myself to the test; Turns out- I can do it quite a bit. Here’s a few #OOTDs

Afrigarde was borne in 2014, as part of her research in Cultural Studies and traditional Ndebele Surface Design and body adornment. Maria decided to work with Felt as her medium, and created an initial range of Wearable Art.

“The concept of the range aims to question cultural biases and our perception of what is ‘Foreign’ or ‘Alien’.” – Maria Uys, Afrigarde

One of the best things about Afrigarde, is that it trains women living in poverty, in learning high-end jewelry-making skills;This is done, in order to supplement their income from doing casual jobs.  This empowers these women to be able to sustain their household.

How great is that you guys?!

Afrigarde is available online here, and is gender neutral so “Yay!” for everybody.
