Chimamanda Adichie: “Why I Wear Nigerian Designers" by Correctgist(f): 2:13pm On Aug 30, 2018
Renowned Nigerian author and feminist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has in an interview with i-D’s Candice Carty-Williams revealed the reason behind her choice of fashion.




“I decided to use fashion as a kind of political statement,” Chimamanda reveals, “which is to say that I made the choice to wear mostly Nigerian designers to public events, because obviously I want to support an industry that’s full of talent, but also to make a case for how fashion can tell a story. Fashion and culture are intertwined in very interesting ways.”


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has continued to use her Instagram page to showcase her love for Nigerian fashion brands.

i-D is a British magazine focused on fashion, style, and contemporary culture. Founded in 1980, iD is known for the “straight up’ photography style, which it pioneered, as well as its iconic “wink”, which appears on nearly every cover. Since 2012, i-D has been owned by Vice Media.

cheesy

While Chimamanda is signing seven figure deals in Hollywood to have her books turned into movies and Beyonce is using her speeches to promote her songs, NAIRALANDERS are giving themselves diarrhea over her feminism.

PS: The guy above me has a familiarity with the concept of ugliness that can only be home grown.

So she thinks "Fashion and culture are intertwined..."
And she loves African culture so much. Then which of our African cultural heritages supports FEMINISM?

IGBO AMAKA.

Keep representing us well Chimamanda Adichie.

You are the female version of Chinua Achebe.

Thunder fire nairaland Misogynists and anti-feminists .
They will die of hate and bitterness.

The more you hate Adichie, the more she keeps growing bigger.

Dear comrade! u r absolutely on track.
Thomas Sankara the greatest African leader that never was.
Burkina Faso lost a 'god' in him.
remember his quote 'The enemies of a people are those who keep them in ignorance'
