Making AFRIK!: The Pan African Students Association Vogue Demonstrate Utilizes Manner Style and design to Build Local community and Celebrate African Culture

Although a lot of folks think of clothing as simply just material that covers components of the entire body, the Pan African Students Association’s AFRIK! trend exhibit used outfits as a pathway to self-expression, historic remembrance and local community constructing.

PASA held its yearly style demonstrate on Saturday, March 4 in Barton Corridor. The show featured established designers with roots across the African diaspora and some of Cornell’s own student designers and versions.

Chicago-centered designer Oluwaseyi Adeleke, the founder and creator of the style brand “prgrssn” or Progression with the Krown, was a single of the designers showcased at the vogue display. He said that his manner layout inspiration and improvement stems from his Nigerian background and he aims for prgrssn’s clothes to teach the wearer and everyone all-around them, with every piece owning a powerful concept in hopes to be a dialogue starter.
