Afrikanista is a brand that was ounded in 2014. It is a line of T-shirts, sweatshirts and accessories that pays tribute to her parents and to the older generations of Africans (especially sub-Saharan in West Africa).

The concept of the brand revolves around four themes: the African photographs which are in Aisse’’s opinion a legacy that every family has at home, African proverbs because beyond their figurative meaning hides very often a morality on the life and our relations as human beings, but also the slogans because through Afrikanista, she also ask questions to identity in the place of immigration into French society. Egyptian hieroglyphs because she passionate about Egyptian civilization since the age of 11; and also because it’s part of African history. Moreover, the logo of the brand, which is a hieroglyph is a nod to this passion. And lastly the FUNKY DIVA epaulets that connote a confident woman in her and her style, at once independent, audacious, who knows where she comes from and where she is going.
Afrikanista is an extension of Aisse’, and is part of her ourney in her quest to find her identity. She shares a portion of herself that has developed her faith and how its importance in her life has grown her as an individual.

Let’s Talk Trends, Shall We?

 

It’s taken awhile but Summer is FINALLY creeping around the corner. As the Winter weather backs out of the fight, we find our side of town to be blazin’. Don’t get me wrong, I love Winter, layers and even turtle necks. However, there is something about being ‘Summertime fine’ that sparks more IG posts on my page than usual. The contrast in the weather plays a good relation on the inter-conflict I experience when deciding on what’s considered “too revealing” for a Believer.

As if it’s not bad enough that finding something to wear on any day takes hours, now I have to also consider a modest yet summer-like approach to my apparel ( while still staying true to who I am). Does anyone else have these problems? Yea.. we thought you would.  So what do we do? Balance it out.

Being a Believer, I’ve learned, isn’t about denying all the beautiful things that makes me ..me. From the trends I like all the way to the books I read, being an individual and knowing how to express oneself within your Walk is pivotal. SO let’s balance this thang’ out.

We found some fun trends that any Believer could rock while still sticking to their moral!

Where can you find the goods? Check out www.target.com and www.hm.com to snag some summer sales!

A Maine high school is making national headlines after becoming the first school in the nation to provide sportshijabs for Muslim student athletes, Yahoo Style reports. Deering High School, in Portland, ME, has many student athletes who wear hijabs, or headscarves often worn by Muslim-practicing women for religious purposes. Unfortunately, these head coverings are often not conducive to extreme physical activity: As one student lacrosse player explained, “With a regular hijab it was really hard and I was always adjusting it. I’m a goalie, so if I don’t watch the ball for a second, that’s a decision that could lead to the other team scoring on us.” Read more
