Fashion Forward: The Afropolitan Shop is an online boutique by Beverly Lwenya, a Kenyan-American with a desire to tell an African Design Story. It began as a blog in 2007 called The Afropolitan Network, which highlighted stories and images of what black people from all the continents were doing in the Diaspora. The hobby grew into a passion and now a full-time pursuit. Beverly aims to celebrate African designers and artisans for their prolific and imaginative handiwork while giving them access to the global market.
The pieces above are by designers Kushn, Nina Afrique, and the Afropolitan Collection 2012. All are available for purchase at The Afropolitan Shop
