Nigerian sustainable fashion brand Cute-Saint has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2022 collection tagged Our Mother’s Pride.
According to the statement of the brand:
This collection examines the life of marginalized people in Africa with a focus on the LGBTQIA+ community; their existence, history, lifestyle, struggles and emergence.
Nothing can be more ironic than the saying that “Being who you are is Unafrican”. Several types of research have shown the existence of queerness on the continent as far back as the pre-colonial era.
The collection seeks to celebrate the lives of every human being society has forced to live in the closet, who has broken the norm by coming out, who have continued to fight for the freedom and protection of all lives; victimized by society but fail to be weakened.
The collection features bright colours and symbols as a motif that signifies diversity, cut-outs, waves and structures to interpret the mood and preach positivity.
You are the Pride of Africa, You are what it means to be African, You are our Mother’s Pride.
